Yesterday many shops in Venice closed for one hour during the funeral of the young woman died at the Bataclan theatre during the Paris attacks.

She grown up in Venice (we attended the same high school) and her parents are well known and estimated.

It’s nice to see every year how Venetians remember this old tradition and the vow made by a Doge almost 400 years ago. It creates a link between old and new generations.

Love “Al Timon”, and not only because I know Ale since we were little boy scout :-)

The notice says “Be kind, max 10 pieces”
