Protesters are dissatisfied with the actions of Mayor Luigi Bruniaro, who, in their opinion, seeks to turn Venice into a huge floating theme park, gradually ousting all the residents from the historic city, vacating a place for tourists. Venice is the most striking example of the destructive impact of tourism: in recent years, the city has literally turned into a huge open-air museum, whose main function is to delight the eyes of millions of visitors from around the world (annually, about 30 million tourists come). But meanwhile, there are permanent residents in Venice, however, their number in recent years has decreased by half. For them, this city is not just a tourist attraction, but their interests are not wanted by the authorities, pushing citizens to protest actions.
