Can two people sitting at a table cause noise to such an extent that it is not considered tolerable and this lead to the closure of only one wine bar?
The Court of Venice has said no! In fact, it assessed that given the specificity of the context and the conditions leading to noise emissions, it is not possible to determine the source of the noise.
The court’s decision also took into account the recent regulatory changes adopted by the Venice City Council, which set precise limitations on the hours of operation of establishments in the area of Fondamenta della Misericordia.
The court, in light of all this, considered Vino Vero’s earlier closing time to be unjustified and therefore upheld the complaint and reformed the order in question.
Vino Vero thus returns to its usual hours: closing at midnight every day except Friday and Saturday, when it closes at one o’clock.
We are happy that we can continue to do our work, with the professionalism that has always characterised us. We love Venice and we do not want this city to become a museum with fixed and predetermined opening and closing times.
Precisely because we love and live in Venice, we know how important residents’ need for tranquillity and rest is, and – with profound respect for this – we felt that this was a good opportunity to ask ourselves about the future we want – as citizens – for Venice and the historic centres of many Italian cities, with the aim of activating a positive, participatory public dialogue.
Vino Vero is not just a wine bar, we cultivate culture and we want to continue to do so. Thank you all for supporting us so far: we have won, but we want to continue to fight so that Venice remains a city which is alive beyond mere tourism. That is why it is important to continue collecting signatures, to show that there are many of us who want Venice to stay alive.
Sign this petition so that Venice does not become the world’s biggest museum, with fixed opening and closing times, where people no longer have the right and freedom to live. This trend does not only affect Venice, but all Italian historic centres.
The court of Venice has issued a decree obliging Vino Vero, a natural wine bar with over 1,000 labels, to close early at 11pm. The reason for this is down to a complaint from the tenants on the floor above, according to whom the ‘noise emissions’ coming from the wine bar are intolerable, to the point of compromising their psycho-physical balance.
The judge’s order reads: ‘the anthropic activities connected with the “Vino Vero” restaurant exceed the tolerable threshold of noise emissions (…) even when there are only two people sat at a table and when there are four people on the premises, the noise emissions exceed the threshold of normal tolerability’.
We are faced with a huge paradox: if just two people sitting at a table having a glass of wine is a problem, then the activity of any venue or restaurant operating after 11pm in Venice becomes illegal.
The message which comes across is that Venice after 11pm should close and its inhabitants should stay at home under a curfew, because then even the normal passage of boats and people becomes a disturbance.
