Farewell To Venice! Your angel shines brightly on the tower of the city. And the distant ringing of bells, Saint Mark’s rushing water as someone moan..(Merezhkovsky)
One of many crowds of tourists, for the mad clatter and the ringing of a fortune died long ago the real Venice. This is a dead city, a Ghost of past lives and alien feast on her bones.
Death spilled everywhere here. In this marine lagoon, the water in the channels that will not leak. In the Grand frescos, masterpieces by Titian, Bellini, and Bonifacio Veronese, which reflects the deceased’s life. Predatory and great story of merchants, masters of the sea for a long time in the past. All of these grandiose palaces, temples and houses left the people. They are given the hordes of tourists for the final plundering.
All of Venice rests on the Russian poles. Piles of planed Siberian larch, this type of wood does not rot in water and is growing stone. One big Church is worth a million such piles…the Real trouble brings the Venetian festival, with its mad tourist wave. Who is the flow of money that runs this town with tons of debris, floods and diseases.
Sinking a great legacy in the thickness of the greedy world… (zoom in photo)Closed dozens of old shops, a salon where sewed shirts for the Duke of Windsor and Hemingway, replaced the store of Venetian masks. Made in China. In Italian restaurants and hotels is the Venetian you will meet friendly thousand Asian guys.
The initial wealth of Venice is the stolen treasures of the Byzantine Empire and the copies taken by the masters of Constantinople…
St. Mark’s Cathedral rebuilt on the model of Hagia Sophia of Constantinople, of the deceased. the same majestic was the main Byzantine Cathedral”Venice must listen to at night. Lapping lapping on the walls of the channels of the waves, the patter of rain on the roof and the sound of Italian heels on the pavement asleep.” (Guide 1967).
One of the entrances to the Cathedral of St. Markusevacka there is nothing to listen to. Even the night running through the channels of the nacelle, knocking 100 euros with screaming tourists. Barely alive, shaking heart you can still hear in the hours before dawn, when the mist covers the lion of Venice.
In rare angles you can still hear the crystal heart of Venice…In Venice there are no public toilets and drains. The waste is washed directly into the channels of the houses. In Venice, do not bury the dead. The dead were being taken to the cemetery island of San Michele..
Today in Venice, few Venetians. Life here is four times more expensive than in Italian towns twenty miles to the North. In 1999, a new law has simplified the transfer of residential buildings of Venice in hotels for 2 years their number has grown in 600 times.
Hotels become houses of Venice surrounded by greedy gondoliers and gondolas who are not lucky with the inheritance, we have to go to Khrushchev on the outskirts. Those lucky enough to sell the property and go to a better world. Apartment of 36 meters easy to sell in Venice for 17 million rubles. Palazzo (building) with planning permission for a hotel will go, and over 700 million rubles.
Venice became the home of millionaires around the world.In Venice in the middle ages created the first Jewish ghetto in the world. The name did not carry a negative connotation or infringement of Jewish rights, just the name of the Jewish quarter…In 1989, the city lived 120,000 Venetians. In 2018 they left 56 000. And each year multiplied the crowds of tourists to 30 million a clog every inch of the narrow stone bag without a single tree.
tourists a long time does not disperse and the end drageset economical thousand mouths daily chew instant noodles and garbage on the great parapets. As a sad joke the last Venetians “in 50 years they will be locked in a cage, with the inscription feed permitted.”
Innumerable rows of gondolas for 17 million roubles apiece.In Venice are the graves of the poet Brodsky, choreographer Diaghilev and composer Stravinsky…a Cup of coffee here cost 600 rubles, dinner for two, 7000, and the night in a modest hotel features 15 000 rubles. A ride on a gondola through the channels 7000 rubles for 10-20 minutes. Although the price of a license at 17 million rubles for the gondola, it seems not so expensive.
For 15 000 per night in the centre of Venice you can get a room of the XIX century, with the ceiling of the XVIII century.Few people can stay here, this only reinforces the tourist load for the day and stimulates new garbage.
Only in Venice a view from the room b Venice gondolier 452 and one woman among them….The water is life, and it kills. Venice is doomed, centuries-long war against the water lost. The last ship on wooden stilts out in the sea due to subsidence and a rising tides of global warming.
Water Venice avenues, life itself (flipping gallery)Every year Venice goes down by 5 mm and finally sink in 2100. Billion MOSE project – managed the construction of dams against floods will delay but not stop the destruction.
Venice is the scenery stunning drama where everyone is eager to get to the finals. This pulsing nerve of the Earth with frenzied energy and shocking beauty, which don’t exist anymore.
In the dying theatre “Venice” light, scenery and costumes are so beautiful that captures the spirit and want more. But this bright curtain will still fall before the end of the play.
