The Venice Public Health Committee has demonstrated on the occasion of the "boat parade for the good name of Venice" organized by the Municipality along the Grand Canal.
We brought our banners and the informative posters for the people gathered in the Station's Square, and held a meeting.
The speech was on purpose disturbed by the march organizators, which highed the volume of the light music they were broadcasting to make it unaudible.
Anyway our boat with the banner: "STUCO E PITURA; FA BEA FIGURA?" ("Plaster and paint, do they really make a good effect today?" Ancient venetian saying transformed in a question) followed the march untill the end, while other friends had collected 22 new signatures on the Petition in the Square.
A English-Italian illustrated article, on the state of the Basilica di San Marco and its so-called "restoration", was published in Venice ObServer:
