This work presents a study of the hydrodynamics of the Comacchio coastal lagoon, located in the North-East of Italy. Looking forward to the building of an earth-gravel levee, which has the aim to split the basin in two parts to overcome fishing management difficulties, a comparison of the water circulation in the northern and larger basin before and after the levee construction is performed. An extensive on-field campaign to collect geographical data has been carried out before the implementation of a numerical model. The main hydrodynamics forcing are winds and tidal oscillations: a discussion of the results of the study is reported
