Venice is alive! Despite Venetian authorities having recently stated that Venice is dead, and that the future is in Mestre, there are several thousand Venetians that are fighting every day to keep the traditions alive, to involve the locals in events and activities, as well as to increase the experience of the visitors by preserving and reinforcing the identity of Venice!!!
Venice is so much more than just a tourist’s Carnival or a romantic weekend; Venice is a city with thousand years old traditions and, even more importantly, inhabitants whose unique lifestyle can’t be imitated anywhere else in the western world: events as this “Fresco” and many others all through the year, that are organized directly by the people who live here, are a loud and clear sign of a city whose citizens are never going to give up.
We want to thank again the women of “VIVA Voga Veneta: perchè Venezia si vive vogando” for their work and passion and for giving hope and joy to all us Venice lovers who scream: VENICE IS ALIVE!
P.s: we’re sure you really don’t want to know who the Venetian authority who spoke of no future for Venice is…
