Intrebarea este ce se poate face concret?! Pentru ca e clar ca in ritmul asta nu prea mai merge. Aceeasi poveste este in tot mai multe locuri.
Dar, apropo de incalzire globala…vasele astea mari de croaziera care stau cu orele fix pe langa plaje or fi ok?!
On a July morning in Cannaregio – a neighbourhood tucked away from the congested Piazza San Marco area – you can still catch a glimpse of the authentic Venetian lifestyle. The scene plays out much as it does in other Italian cities: smartly dressed people chat animatedly as they shop at the butcher’s and baker’s or congregate at the bar. Children play freely on the streets.
The area remains mostly undisturbed by tourists, but Luciano Bortot, who was born here, is feeling anything but serene. “You’re asking me what it’s like to live with this crap?” he said. “It used to be wonderful, we had lots of artisans … the problem now is the mass tourism, the people who come for just a few hours and see nothing – it’s as much of a nightmare for them.”
Like many of his neighbours, Bortot despises the behemoth cruise ships that chug through the Giudecca canal four or five times a day, emitting fumes before disgorging thousands of people – on some days as many as 44,000 – into the historic centre.
