I am Venetian, and like many of my fellow citizens I can say that I was "born in a boat". As a child my father used to take me to row with what seemed to me a gondola, then as a kid I discovered the venetian traditional sailing, and sailing with my boat I began to get to know the islands of the lagoon.
The passion for boats continued even after, I graduated with a thesis in history of navigation and then I embarked on a tourist activity, taking my customers to the most remote and unknown corners of the lagoon.
Now I am a director but my love for the lagoon has remained the same, and even today, cruising through those channels that now I know by heart, I feel the same emotion as when I explored them for the first time.
For years I have felt the need to tell about my Venice, a city that I see slowly disappearing, suffocated by tourism and threatened by climate change that is putting its survival at risk.
