This is the map of the Italy and surroundings in fictional 2100 rising sea level scenario.

After global warming and rising of sea level sharply escalated, sea level is now 100 meters higher than it was in year 2000.

For that, major parts of Italy(including Rome) are now sunken under sea level. After creation of Saharan Sea and rapid flooding of north Tunisia, many of its inhabitants emigrated or moved to the new fertile south.

Якщо затоплення буде поступовим, то середземноморські країни зможуть відгородитись, побудувавши дамбу на Гібралтарі.

According to this picture....Pavia (77 meters above sea level) should be completely under water....by 2100
nice concept. Never going to happen.
The worst case scenarios predict a 2 meters rise by 2100.....
And this is an apocalyptic scenario:
If all the ice covering Antarctica, Greenland, and in mountain glaciers around the world were to meltsea level would rise about 70 meters (230 feet). The ocean would cover all the coastal cities. And land area would shrink significantly. Butmany cities, such as Denver, would survive.

conclusion...
unless a celestial body (moon size) completely made of water hits the earth......and that would cause a total annihilation of earth and all living creatures anyway.....we will never have enough water to cover Italy the way it has been depicted.

Nice work, but pure fantasy.

Oy' why Milano is the capital? You've placed Sarno and Nola but not Portici? I live here (in Portici), we have the first railway in Europe, the Borbonic palace, harbor of Granatello... Potevo restarci offeso Wink/Razz
However... nice job bro, like it Clap

This is frightfully amazing!
It gives me a strange feeling to imagine some of the places I've been to or that I would like to visit coverd forever by water. It is hard to picture the city I live in as a costal town and it is almost painful to realize that possibly one day people will not be able to see for themselves the beauty of many of the sunken towns and cities, especially Rome..not because it is a parlicular favourite of mine but simply because it's probably yhe city I've visited the most..
I also wanted to ask if you labled Milan as the capital city because of the flooding of Rome :)

Bella idea, ma non hai tenuto conto di altri elementi come vulcani e sismicità.
Tra i fav ugualmente :)
