Spring marks the beginning of peak tourist season in Venice. Flows aren’t going to reduce before mid-winter. WahV consulted with Israeli TV for their series of news reports on overtourism in European hotspots: Venice, Barcelona, Dubrovnik. It is striking to see a situation that we have almost become accustomed to flashed back on the screen. The regression to barbarism is vividly depicted.
The Biennale vernissage is a very particular hotspot on the tourism calendar bringing thousands of cultural operators and their entourages including media, investors, business managers, professionals, other artists as well as party goers. This year WahV provided significant commentary.
