The liners will no longer be able to approach the iconic St. Mark’s Square in Venice and will for the moment be forced to anchor at the city’s industrial port, the Italian government announced on Thursday.

It’s a decision made “in order to protect a cultural and historical heritage which belongs not only to Italy, but to the whole world”, said the ministers of Culture, Tourism, Environment and Infrastructure, in a joint statement.

They stressed that the industrial port represented a solution “temporary” and “called for contributions” to find “a definitive solution to the problem of the circulation of large ships in Venice” by creating a new terminal outside the lagoon of the historic city.

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, the liners poured millions of visitors to Venice every year, still further weakening the historic city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
