This photo just makes me smile. Thanks so much to Andrew for answering my call for someone to check this out, and also for sending the photo to me and giving permission to post it here. Andrew took this photo on November 21, 2012, the day of the Festa della Salute. Happy to see such beautiful blue skies for that lovely celebration.
What cracks me up is that if you look at my photos from 2007, 2008, and 2010, and compare them to Andrew's photo, it is clear as a bell that NOTHING is happening here! Decorative scaffolding, a project completely stalled for some unknown reason. We'll continue to monitor the "progress" on this one. :)
And speaking of Venice and towers, I stumbled across this article about Pierre Cardin's controversial plan to build a "futurisitic" tower in Porto Marghera. It wouldn't be in Venice but would be visible from Venice. What do you all think? I vote yes.
