Dec 15th 2014, seagulls flies over St. Mark's Square in Venice.
In Venice, floods of tourists alternate with real floods. And now the survival of the city itself is at risk. With approximately 50,000 permanent residents and almost 30 million visitors per year, Venice arguably withstands the world’s highest tourist pressure for an urban space. As if this was not enough, the seasonal floods occurring in the city are worsening year after year due to the sea level rise.
