MOSE (Experimental Electromechanical Module) is a project intended to protect the city of Venice from flooding.
It is an integrated system consisting of rows of mobile gates installed at the entrance of the Venetian lagoon that are able to isolate the Venetian Lagoon temporarily from the Adriatic sea during high tides.
MOSE is flexible and can be operated in different ways according to the characteristics and height of the tide. On 3 October 2020, the MOSE was activated for the first time in the occurrence of a high tide event, preventing some of the low-lying parts of the city (in particular piazza San Marco) from being flooded.
ISOLFIN delivered the insulation and anti-corrosive protection of this key infrastructure to protect the city of Venice, one of the marvel of the world
