Venice carnival: Empty streets and canals as city celebrates annual event

Description

The annual Carnival celebration in Venice may have been canceled, but around 50 revelers gathered in St. Mark’s Square wearing decorative masks. This year the face coverings are worn as much to protect as they are to amuse.

  • Venice canals empty of gondolas in once-overcrowded, now deserted city

    On St. Mark's Square, even the pigeons have disappeared and on the famous canals, Venice's iconic gondolas remain anchored in harbours, calm and inactive due to measures imposed to halt the spread of the coronavirus. Tourists from all over the world and locals no longer breathe the routine of bustling city life into the enchanting scenery Venice is known for as images show the floating city in a rare state of tranquility.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
