According to some experts, by the year 2030 Venice could be ghost town, which would be populated only by the tourists who would visit during the day. This is due to the continuous depopulation that’s happening in the last 50 years – from over 120,00 down to 60,000. Venice is sinking at the rate of 1-2 millimeters every year, and this is one of the reasons why the locals are moving out… besides the high cost of house maintenance and the aqua alta. I think it would be interesting to see Venice without so much people, it would add mystery to the city. But for now, I can only see it void of colors.
