The Venezia Lavora Committee, made up of operators and workers linked to port activities and their related industries, asks to define and plan the restart of cruise activities in the Venetian port, also to worthily celebrate the 1,600 years of history of the city which started foundation of its first church, San Giacométo a Rialto, on 25 March 421.
In a note addressed to citizens, the Committee recalls that “an architectural and industrial jewel like the Marittima has never been empty and sad as this year and that with the passage denied for the Giudecca Canal and the Vittorio Emanuele still far from being realized is even questioned by the resumption of activities “.
“We – underlines the Committee – are the engine of the city, with our work as employees, artisans and traders and we want to continue to be so, here in the city of water, we want to continue to make our contribution as Venetians so that Venice continues to be a city. We do not live on tourism alone, we agree, but at the moment this is what the city lives on and from this we have to start again. And we live in cruising ”.
The Committee concludes by asking “cities, politicians, institutions, citizens, workers, men of science, art and business, environmentalists, traders and artisans to join together to give Venice a future and urging them to work together to understand what the market will be cruise ships to aspire to, which types of ships can the Venetian port offer and which are the possible alternative nautical accesses to the Giudecca Canal and which destination areas in the future may replace the Marittima “.
