Buongiorno a tutti

We’ve been saddened this week to see how an unusually high
acqua alta
and adverse weather conditions left Venice devastated, in the worst flooding the city has seen since 1966.
As a state of emergency was declared and Venice was repeatedly swamped by unusually high tides, many readers were asking: “what about the flood barriers?”
Here we look at why the city’s long-promised flood barrier system still isn’t finished yet, and why Venice residents are hardly any more protected from flooding than they were half a century ago.
We also heard the terrible stories of St Marks’ priceless mosaics being drowned in sewage, and how Venice’s most-loved bookshop was ruined despite keeping its books inside bathtubs and even a gondola.. But there was some heartwarming news too, as we heard how Venetians took to social media to raise money for the owner of a local news kiosk, which was washed away by floodwater, and quickly exceeded their target. Read the full report from our writer in Venice here.
