” medieval turnstile in venice “

feeling upset by the last decision of venice mayor. the entrance of the city is locked by turnstile surveilled by the local police. at the moment the turnstiles are at the beginning of calatrava bridge and lista di spagna calle. maybe in future other entrance will be established with the turnstile. i admit this situation is very embarassing.


first of all because the city becomes like it is a medieval age situation. second point the residents are privileged with a special gate. this i enuf for me because insted of being in an open world city this seems to be back in worst unimaginable localism.


of course it is a discrimination of the tourists and the only hope is this is perhaps an italian-style discrimination hence at the end it will be a sort of farce… but it is if possibile more scary.

  1. I can understand your thinking. When Canada was confederated, as of 1867, its indigenous population was sent to reserves. They had mixed with Europeans, who brought diseases, since 1634, for 263 years.

  2. Micheline : Yes it is a real problem. Blocking the circulation of people is a wrong way because it shows a different definition of people on the basis of territory. The fragmentation of universal in particularism is the wrong answer. Thanks for commenting. Ciao.

  3. We are put inside little boxes. Larger ones for the rich. Territoriality was mostly unknown to Amerindians. They shared the land and inspired Rousseau. We’ve borders, yet we are all the same. CIAO
