Giuseppe Conte, Italy’s Prime Minister described the Venice flooding as “a blow to the heart of our country”.
State of emergency was declared in Venice, Italy after the Italian city was engulfed by 1.87m high water levels, flooding its historic basilica and cutting power to homes.
More than 80% of the city was under water.
The Embassy of Italy in Belgrade embraces the appeal launched by the Mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro, inviting everyone to contribute to the campaign for the high water emergency.
