How do you envision Venice in the future? The city plans its rebirth with an open debate.
Venezia da Vivere and the Piazza San Marco Association have launched #RiscrivereilFuturo di Venezia, an open debate for the city’s rebirth, considering that its future will depend on the choices we are making today.
How do you envision Venice in the future? This is the first interview question that has been made to entrepreneurs, curators, directors of cultural institutions, hoteliers, university rectors and teachers, event organizers and citizens, who live and work in Venice.
How do you want to #RiscrivereilFuturo (rewrite the future) of Venice? This question has been asked to all citizens through the social networks, virtual places where, during the lockdown, a real interest has emerged from all over the world for the fate of Venice.
In the coming weeks there will be many interlocutors involved in the search for a variety of innovative ideas and actions that Venice needs. The #RiscrivereIlFuturo project is a collection of ideas also to be used in politics, a compendium of possible and desirable futures that can always be consulted, and from which a city in balance with the environment, work and its civitas can be created.
These interviews are online on the websites and social profiles of the Piazza San Marco and Venezia da Vivere associations. These and several others that will be published throughout the month of May and they will become the guidelines of a forthcoming international online conference telling the day-to-day rebirth of Venice.
