Living in Venice: a challenge and an opportunity for a good quality of life
Today, many people consider Venice a fun tourist destination and not somewhere they would choose to live. The strong commercial pressure from the tourist industry, and the lack of political interest in the preservation of the city's identity, have caused a shift in how it is perceived: from a magic place rich in art treasures into a sort of overcrowded theme park. Contrary to this general view, Venice offers a very high quality of life that is slow paced, and based on human relationships and cultural engagement. Ethical investors and new citizens attracted by this unique way of life, and who are motivated to become part of the Venetian community, could change the destiny of Venice. And they could contribute to saving a great international cultural heritage.
