I got in Venice throught the Liberty Bridge looking at the Lagoon that show with low tide: there some fishermen working collecting oysters, each with half a body in the water.
When I was child I thought that Venice were surrounded by deep sea, a sort of ocean around the old city, but a day I saw the bottom of the lagoon emerge and Venice somehow lost his image, a bit childhood disappointment.

SELECTED PICTURES FROM A GONE MONTH.
from rialto bridge
As an amateur farmer I enjoy working in the garden in the afternoons during these months of lockdwon. Some economists argue that if a professional gardener does the gardening work then the national product increases. On the other hand, if an amateur does it, the national product does not increase.
My workmate is a blackbird who warns me when it’s time to stop working. It happens that he approaches me and begins to whistle. Or scrape the ground for worms letting me know it’s his turn.
Sometimes I find worms and let them be captured by the blackbird who looks at me rather surprised that I give up such a delicacy.
The blackbird then looks at me and I bet he thinks I’m really a fool. How can anyone give up such a delicacy?

Today is the 1600th anniversary birthday of Venice.
Alot of years maybe in the exact location where now I am writing on a virtual computing keyboard, on that date (march 25 421 a.d.) some ancient ancestors of mine had had the idea… but what idea?
Nobody knows. History is strange matter, it is not only matter of surviving instict to barbaric invasions after the fall of Ancient Roman Empire.
Anyway here are some pictures I took them two weeks ago due to the current pandemic covid-19 lockdown.
The Saint Mark Lion at Venice Arsenal, on the wall a quote by Dante’s Divina Commedia poem.
