Further flooding in Venice has attracted the attention of the international media, including The Daily Telegraph, The Times and The Independent.
‘The people “in charge” of Venice are increasingly out of touch and have different priorities to the residents.’
The Associated Press, CGNT News, Estonian newspaper Postimees, Serbian newspaper Telegraaf and Danish paper Information also featured interviews with us, as the disastrous and preventable flooding in Venice makes headlines across the world.
‘If we win the referendum, quality of life would improve and political representations would be more in touch with life in the city.’
