28-07-2005 20:25Nothing can be more exasperating then the realization that nefarious financial interests are wrecking the environment with the false excuse of saving it.
This global tendency applies also to the lagoon city of Venice.
More and more Venetians suspect these days the four billion dollar project to ‘Save Venice’ from flooding is padding certain pockets while leaving their city to sink deeper into its lagoon.
