On Saturday 28 August, we were finally able to clean up the island of Madonna del Monte in collaboration with VERITAS. A strip of land near Mazzorbo, Burano, with an ancient past, that the incivility of our fellow citizens has not spared. Everything was documented and archived through the MAELSTROM app – MArinE Litter SusTainable RemOval and Management Project, currently still in beta version, to support our clean-up and monitoring of the marine litter.
Finally, a heartfelt thanks go to all the volunteers who participated and removed 150 kg of waste (including paint and resulting material) that we delivered to the waste management authority of Venice, VERITAS. Let’s restore dignity to the cultural and natural heritage of our lagoon territory and the smaller islands, each of us, by doing our part in preventing and denouncing such uncivilized and illegal practices!
