Here's a clip showing what it looks like when the sea decides to visit the shop of remer Paolo Brandolisio.
We see shots of people walking around on planks and in rubber boots, and it seems comical, but seeing water in your home or place of business surely must be an uncomfortable thing.
I'm guessing that Paolo, like most Venetians, takes it all in stride. I'm not sure I could be so cool watching my workshop flood on a regular basis.
The Venetian spirit is an enviable one.
