Venice is sinking. It has been for centuries. The flooding has become so commonplace that the city builds elevated walkways and shopkeepers keep water barriers on their doors.
But this Monday – on the exact anniversary of our floods – Venice was inundated with the deepest waters they’ve had in 22 years.
The Big Picture Blog documents it stunningly in, of course, big pictures.
What amazes me is how casually Venice residents deal with the deluge. Would you be as prepared as a Venetian for the next flood?
