Urban Decay in Venice

“Venice is a city that has the sea for its floors, the sky for its roof and the flow of the waters for walls.” – B. Da Sigma

Venice’s architecture has the most exquisite stonework but underneath those walls lie a great problem, it’s the destruction of brick by saltwater.

    Venice, one way or another, is in serious trouble that will take real money to solve. Lovely atmospheric photos.

    These buildings would be in trouble sitting on dry land. I hope something can be done. Good photos, though.

      For sure. But it is still such an amazing place erosion and all. That is what gives it character.

    Poor Venice. So beautiful but so many problems. I keep reading how they’ve loved the break from tourism due to the pandemic, yet they need the tourists to be able to be able to survive. And the flooding . . . ! Anyway, I’ve never been and fear I’ll never get there, but would sure love to see it in person.

    We were only only one day in Venice while camping (in the 70ties) in Yugoslavia. So much to see.I can imagine that the water causes the decay of the houses.
    At that time we lived in Holland, and pizzas were not part of common Dutch food, I think it was my first pizza ever, and I liked it:)

      Yes, Venice is one of my favourites and just too bad that our tour didn’t let us stay there for longer. The texture and the architecture is at its best! 👍🏼
