High tide captured during the morning of November 6th, 2023 in Piazza San Marco, Venice (Italy). The MOSE system of mobile gates, designed to defend the Venice lagoon from tides up to 3 metres high, is not activated for tide levels below 110 cm. However, when the tide reaches 83 cm, the lowest point of St. Mark’s Square begins to flood.
