During the last few years, we frequently heard serious news about Venice: uncontrolled cruise business, inappropriate behaviour of both tourists and locals, alarming floating levels and the risk of being included by Unesco on the list of world heritage sites in danger in 2017.

More than 5 million people visited Venice in 2015, and we expect this number to increase in the near future. To find new sustainable and eco-friendly tourismโ€™s solutions, is nowadays more than ever essential for the survival of the city and its territory. And I believe knowledge and awareness are the keys. ๐Ÿ”‘

I have created this independent and apolitical feature as a virtual coffee bar where meeting new friends and Venice enthusiasts, sharing tips to enjoy the city mindfully and out of beaten tracks, discussing about the difficulties that both travellers and Venetians have to face in town, and supporting those projects and ideas who have the goal of safeguarding this magical city, its monuments and traditions, natural environment and local handcrafts.

#VENICEISNOTSINKING born from my genuine love for my hometown and the desire of sharing the message that another Venice is possible.
