Go to Venice soon! Because if the current trend will hold, the city will be decomposed rather soon.

Looking at the costs and the corruption of large projects like the flood protection system MOSE, it might be better to let Venice die a slow death of drowning. The few thousand people could move, and we would have a modern Atlantis, posing as a warning of the consequences of climate change.

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a writer, a spy or a hobo.

    I’ve read that Venice was founded by Romans trying to escape Attila the Hun. I don’t know if it’s true, but it was artificial to begin with.
