威尼斯8/1起禁大郵輪

 Large cruise ships will be banned from sailing into the center of Venice from August 1st, after years of warnings that they risk causing irreparable damage to the lagoon city. The decision, confirmed at a Cabinet meeting on July 13th, came just in time, because UNESCO recommended last month adding Venice to its list of World Heritage in Danger sites. UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay said that the Italian government’s decision is “very good news and an important step to the safeguarding of this unique heritage site.”
 The ban applies to ships that weigh more than 25,000 tons, are longer than 180 meters (530 feet), or have other characteristics that would make them too polluting or overwhelming for Venice's environment.
 The Cabinet decree also establishes “an unbreakable principle”, by declaring the urban waterways of St. Mark's Basin, St. Mark's Canal and the Giudecca Canal a national monument.
 Bezos’ space flight blasted off on July 20th. He was joined by his brother, Mark, and two other lucky guests.

 大型郵輪將自八月一日起,禁止駛入威尼斯市中心,多年來就不斷有人警告,郵輪會對這座潟湖城市造成難以復原的傷害。在七月十三日內閣會議上通過的這項決定來得正是時候,聯合國科教文組織上個月提出建議,要把威尼斯列入瀕危世界遺產名單。聯合國教科文組織祕書長奧黛麗·阿祖萊表示,義大利政府的決定是「一大好消息,也是保護此一獨特遺產的重要一步。」
 禁令適用於重量超過兩萬五千噸、長度超過一百八十公尺(五百三十英尺),或者是具有其他特徵會造成威尼斯環境汙染或難以承受的船舶。
 這項內閣法令還確立了「牢不可破的原則」,宣布聖馬克盆地、聖馬克運河和朱代卡運河交織而成的城市水道為國家紀念碑。
