Simone: "Because of the workshop, I only could visit the city in the weekend. I was walking through the “calli” and “campi”, crossing the canals that have made this place unique in the world. Venice is a beautiful city, but this is likely to become the main cause of its ruin."
"Each year about 30 million tourists pour into the city, 83 thousand per day, 140 thousand during the summer. This is the most visited period of the year, between Biennale, great shows and the approaching Redentore. This is amazing, if you think about the size and the fragile balance of this place between the inhabitants, students and the tourists. The students prefer to go home for the weekend or even commute continually between home and university, because of the high prices of rents and the prices of the Venetian life. It seems that The city prefers to continue to feed on the sale of unnecessary souvenirs and other rubbish objects rather than ideas of this precious resource."
"Nevertheless, There are still small peaceful moments, where you can enjoy the city in all of its beauty."
