A marine scientist and a historian go on a highly personal search to find the long-lost third column of St Marks Square in Venice, rumoured to have sunk in the Lagoon over 900 years ago. Enlisting the help of the Italian Navy and state of the art underwater technology, will one of Venice’s most notorious secrets finally be revealed? Following our protagonists we discover what motivates them to attempt such an ambitious challenge and why it’s so important to them, and to Venice.
