Venice Port Community's appeal for the green light Cruises

It is the only sector still standing - underline FIAVET Veneto and YOU. Re. 've. - and we can't wait any longer

The Venice Port Community, which represents the main port operators and tourism operators in the city, launched a call on the government to urgently set a date for the restart of the cruise activity from the Italian ports. "The time of words," points out Alessandro Santi, Community coordinator and president association of Venetian Maritime Agents - sold out and it is now very urgent to move on to the facts, immediately fixing a date for the restart of the cruises, stopped here in Venice now since the November last year. The reopening was for all the other tourism activities, not cruises, despite the fact that they are the necessary security protocols at the tables have been put in place national technical services and therefore all preconditions for operate in maximum safety."

"The situation," complains Vladimiro Tommasini, President the Port of Venice's Portabagagli Cooperative - it is now Unsustainable. We have adopted stringent operational protocols we're ready, we're just waiting for the first ship to arrive. If for winter months, even though we have no work, we have given up our resources guaranteeing the salary, using for the months successive social shocks that have run out, now we claim only one thing: work, even for the many employees seasonals left without income today."

For tourism agencies, "tourism- explain the acronyms FIAVET Veneto and TU category. Re. 've. - manifests cautious but signs of recovery; the only sector still standing is that of cruises, we can't wait any longer; If the restart will not materialize in August there is the risk having to wait until May 2021 and this would be a disaster for many businesses and hundreds of families. In order not to talk about the consequences on the territory resulting from the disappearance of a valuable organized tourism, which requires services and leaves wealth in the territory, from shops to restaurants, hotels glassworks."
