(ANSA) – VENICE, AUGUST 19 – Checks are carried out on the bell tower of San Marco in Venice with a drone supplied to the Fire Brigade, after yesterday’s storm.
This morning a team from the Sapr Nucleus (Remote Pilot Aircraft Systems) operates in the square which, with the aircraft equipped with a camera, reports the situation of the monument in real time.
Excluding static problems at the bell tower, one of the hypotheses is that one of the walls may have been hit by one of the objects – chairs, tables, furnishings – raised by the strong wind, and that some splinters of brick may have fallen to the ground.
Last night, the Patriarchate of Venice, after the technical checks carried out by the Procuratoria di San Marco, had denied the fall of fragments from the bell tower following the meteorological events. (HANDLE).
