THE CITY COUNCIL AT WORK ON TOURIST FLOWS
As a result of Unesco’s appeal, the city council is said to be working to produce a resolution by April to show the international organisation that it is taking serious steps on the problem of controlling tourist flows, according to what the Nuova Venezia reports today. The administration is said to not want any fixed number but to deal with the problem of public order and decorum through specific resolutions. Regarding tourism, the council would intend setting a maximum daily presence, working on tourist group reservations and introducing a person counter to establish the limit for closing the most visited places like Rialto and St Mark’s Square to tourists. When the saturation point has been reached in St Mark’s Square, the council would aim to simply use barriers as in the carnival period and divert tourists to less visited areas.
