“We are very satisfied, it is a good sign of a return to normality, even if I must say that our museums in Venice already in September registered a marked increase in the number of visitors”. Thus at the Adnkronos the director of the Civic Museums of Venice, Gabriella Belli, comments on the decision to liberalize the entrance to the museums by the CTS.
Because, he explains, “for many months we have traveled to 50% of the public compared to 2019, in September we are registering an increase to 60%, now the flexibility that allows us to reach 80% of visitors brings us close to normal., especially for group bookings: in the previous months we had to allow a large number of group members to 5-10 people, a real obstacle since very often they are more numerous. Now we can ease these questions, and therefore this last measure of the Cts it is very important, we are more than satisfied “, reiterates the director of the Civic Museums of Venice.
“A sign of a return to normality, which, however, will bear fruit only next year, and for Venice, the first important appointment will be that of the Carnival in February 2021 – underlines Gabriella Belli – and in any case, Venice is already well attended by tourism today. European, tourists from all European countries have returned, but we also see Russians and Chinese and Americans are returning too, often coming from Spain and France “. And the important thing the director of the Venetian Museums still underlines is that “the fear and fear that were seen in their eyes at the beginning of the pandemic have disappeared: today, thanks to the Green Pass and vaccines, we are all much safer and more peaceful, us and them, while always maintaining prevention measures, such as the use of a mask and hand sanitation “.
