The iconic oak briccole that criss-cross the lagoon fulfil a number of functions.
Like the white lines of a road way they provide directional guidance.
In remote reaches they support lamps that enable night time navigation.
They mark the channels that have been dredged to allow safe passage away from the shallows and marshes where vessels might otherwise run aground.
And around Lido, they create speed restricted lanes that control traffic until it is at a safe distance from the island.
Versatile things these oak logs.
