The night of November 12, 2019 is very strange; suddenly an extremely violent wind rises. In a few minutes a storm invades Venice; the water level reaches 187 cm. The force of water and wind sinks the boats, destroys the brick walls that rise along the canals. Many boats are literally raised and end up in the streets of Venice. The day after, Venice seems like a war zone. While some curious tourists take selfies and while the media talk about the tragedy, a group of Venetians toasts in fron of my camera. With a smile they want to witness the spirit of citizens, always high, despite everything.
