How does the "Venice system"?

Venice is a city in northeastern Italy sited on a group of 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges.

It is located in the marshy Venetian Lagoon which stretches along the shoreline, between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers.

Venice is renowned for the beauty of its setting, its architecture and its artworks. The city in its entirety is listed as a World Heritage Site, along with its lagoon.

Venice is the capital of the Veneto region. In 2009, there were 270,098 people residing in Venice's comune (the population estimate of 272,000 inhabitants includes the population of the whole Comune of Venezia; around 60,000.

But how does the "Venice system"? How do they behave the tides of the lagoon? How are the canals? And the banks? What's under the buildings? Where pipes pass gas and electricity? What are the problems caused by an environment so wet?

We used to see Venice just like a scenic city suitable for movies, but Venice is also a city inhabited. So how does it work in Venice?
