Exceptional high tide: appeal for donations from Italy and abroad
Venice was hit by an exceptional high tide - the second highest in recorded history - which has caused serious damage to the city, residents and to its economic activities.
Historical buildings, banks and foundations, San Marco, museums, schools, islands, houses and shops have been devastated by floods and the fury of the wind.
"The city’s, inhabitants, with the collaboration of the police forces, civil defense and the fire brigade services, immediately got to work to fix, restore and rebuild the city- declared the Mayor Luigi Brugnaro- however, the activity to be done is still enormous.
If you want to contribute to help support the rebuilding of Venice, you can do so through a donation that will be directed to restore what has been damaged by these tragic events and to get our city back to normal.
Italians are proud of Venice, it’s a legacy for everyone, and unique to the world.
Thanks to your help Venice will shine again!"
