The Non-Bridge of Crocetta

New canal, Venice quarter, viale Caprera, LivornoThe long excavation of the new canal in “Viale Caprera”, in the heart of the Venice quarter, is almost over after three years of works.New canal, Venice quarter, viale Caprera, LivornoA problem remains: there is no money now for the bridge (and the two footbridges) on the new canal, so the street still runs on a walled pile of dirt lined with dumpsters, with some exotic Jersey barriers as parapets. The real Venice will surely envy us for this technological and artistic achievement...

I love it when you get sarcastic in your writings. hopefully the city will eventually get is worked out. But I have a feeling it might be awhile. Anyway, you. Can always be glad you're not in Pisa! ;)

Not a good end to the project, thus far. Hopefully they will finish it.

Interesting. I hope they find money to complete the bridge.

Venice have added more taxes on hotel accommodation, we were told, - to get money to fix what needed to be fixed in the old city.

I guess somehow the politicians will find the money.

Here they start of with one budget, than it is doubled one or two times.

Hmmm, with all those tourists going straight from those cruise ships to Pisa and Florence, I see no other solution than waging a war against the one or other of the cities... :-)

A non-bridge concept takes my thoughts from the quotidian to the profound. ~Mary
