words and pics about living and raising a child in Venice
Wow! Fantastic to see that. (You don't think "they" were aiming to land at the Ca'd'Oro Vap stop, do you?)Was it for any special event, do you lnow?
The opening of the Salone Nautico, the Venice Boat show in the Arsenale. An interesting show-not necessarily affiliated with any nationalistic or militaristic sentiment, but the mayor of Venice has lately been adapting the rhetoric of the racist Lega Nord and getting cozier with the far right, so maybe he's positioning himself for political runs beyond Venice. Fighter planes always get the yahoos worked up.
Preparation of the Italian National Day(June 2nd),I suppose.
That would actually make sense, Auvraisien, and is a good supposition, but it was actually to mark the opening of the Salone Nautico, the Venice Boat Show. It might be interesting to think about how military spectacle in many western countries has been distanced from the besieged state--the target of all these right-wing so-called "populist" [ie racist] political parties--and reattached in many cases to commercial or corporate events, when not simply to the partisan right-wing party itself, rather to a more inclusive notion of that state... But that's too much for me.
