The Moses keeps the Venetians in suspense, who now see the only bulwark that can defend them from high waters. But also the politicians, who realize, in case of malfunction of the mobile dams, of having to manage a failure of colossal proportions, whose faults would be distributed, back in time, somewhat to all political forces, from Come on Italy, to the Pd and also to League. For this, as soon as one of the lifting tests at the mouths of the Venice Lagoon it is successful, comments immediately rain excited. At the mouth of Porto del Lido took place on first test 2020. It concerned the entire barrier made up of 20 mobile dams in the southern part, between the artificial island in the center of the canal and San Nicolò. The rise began at 8.30 am and ended shortly after 1 pm. Replies March 3.

One of the first comments came from the Minister of Infrastructure, Paola De Micheli, from the seminary of the Democratic Party in Reatino. With a slip. “Tonight the first test on the Mose it went well…“. He probably misunderstood the last test of 2019 which took place during the night. However, he took the ball to add, referring to future high waters: “If the emergency will reappear we can lift the bulkheads“. A week ago, after a summit in Venice, the super commissioner for MOSE, Elizabeth Spitz, had announced that barriers in an emergency could be raised not earlier than six months. Well that goes, since high water is not statistically a summer phenomenon, it should be discussed again in October. In a few days the super commissioner will illustrate the new time schedule which however should not change the delivery date of the work scheduled for December 2021.

The test was personally followed by mayor from Venice, Luigi Brugnaro, who is also extraordinary commissioner for high water. “Test of the Mose gates in San Nicolò: successful!He tweeted. And aimed at the Venetians, still busy dealing with the damage of the high waters that followed between November and December, he wrote: “We will continue the operation transparency and to put pressure on the works to speed up and complete the project safety of the city: we owe it to citizens who live and work in Venice. We will demonstrate to the world, also for national pride and for credibility of the country, that this great technological work it works“.

Among the damages induced by high water is the decline in tourism, which promises to be poor even for Carnival. “The recovery is still very slow and New Year it wasn’t a party day for us. – he has declared Vittorio Bonacini, president ofVenetian Hoteliers Association – For the moment, the reservations received do not lead us to be optimistic: there is still a lot confusion. To clarify in early February, in collaboration with the Foreign Press Association of Rome, we will have in Venice, our guests, a hundreds of journalists of newspapers from all over the world because international tourists are still there frightened from the images of the high water “.
