Lazzaretto Nuovo and Lazzaretto Vecchio are quite lucky, but they have suffered damage and need professional materials and work.
A 187 cm high water pushed by a wind over 100 km per hour wounded Venice and Lagoon. At the worst evening, just below the "Acqua granda" of 1966, they are following other very difficult days. Population and places have been seriously affected. Lazzaretto Nuovo and Lazzaretto Vecchio can be said to be quite lucky, but they have suffered damage and need professional materials and work. Also these days, our two associations are collaborating as always with Institutions and Foundations for various rescue and transport actions.
Many of you have asked us how we can help the Venetian Lazzaretti and share the non-profit program, which wants them to be "propulsive" places for the community: you can make a donation to the Archeoclub association of Venice with reason "Alluvione 2019".
You will support this extraordinary effort, within the commitment of recovery and enhancement of the two islands, which for forty years has been conducted by volunteers, together with thousands of visitors and many local and international realities.
Once the transfer has been made, send the payment slip to firstname.lastname@example.org: we will be happy to thank you by giving you the booking precedence for the opening day of the season to be held in April 2020 (whose available places must usually be sold out in a short time) )!
For those who want to support us, they can do it:
