EXHIBITIONS AND GUIDED VISITS FOR THE AQUAGRANDA IN ST MARK’S SQUARE
The events commemorating the big flood of 1966 continue in number in St Mark’s Square. The Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana and the Comune di Venezia have organised a series of very interesting guided visits and conferences. On Friday 18 November at 3.30 pm, the engineer Antonio Rusconi, former secretary general of the Autorità di Bacino Alto Adriatico will speak on the subject of ‘La Laguna di Venezia dall'alluvione del 1966 ai giorni nostri’ (The Venice Lagoon from the 1966 flood to the present) in the Sala Sansoviniana at the Biblioteca Marciana. The guided visits will begin with Carlo Campana (Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana) tomorrow, Saturday 12 November at 11.30 am and continue every Saturday until 26 November. The Spazio Olivetti in the Procuratie Vecchie will then remain open with the Anna Zamella photography exhibition ‘Ritorno in Piazza’, where it is also possible to buy the book ‘Aqua in Piazza’ (cover in photo) edited by Jane da Mosto and Giannandrea Mencini and supported by the Associazione Piazza San Marco, FAI and the association We Are Here Venice. It is intended to offer a better understanding of the tidal phenomenon in Venice and the future prospects for life in the Square, which ends up under water even with low-medium tides.
