Il Tricolore on the Grand Canal

Beginning on April 16, and running through and beyond Italy's Liberation Day holiday on April 25, the Rialto bridge was lit with the colors of the Italian flag to show solidarity with the rest of the country in the struggle against the coronavirus. The above image was taken on Saturday, May 2 when the stillness of the formerly busy Grand Canal (especially on a weekend in May!) struck me as much as the colored lighting of the bridge. (The bridge is no longer lit this way.)
