I was recently interviewed by La Nuova Venezia to voice my opinion on the possibility of Venice being put on Unesco’s Heritage-in-danger list. In 2014, Unesco warned Italy that it had until 2016 to act on a list of problems that occurred and endangered Venice as a World Heritage Site. The list of problems included “wave motion (moto ondoso) induced by wind and water traffic, the erosion of the lagoon bed compounded by the illegal harvesting of shellfish, pollution, the conservation of man-made heritage, the progressive loss of resident population in the historical centre and on the islands and growing, almost unsustainable, levels of tourism”. The original interview (in Italian) with my response to the matter can be found here.
