The documentary presents the phenomenon of depopulation of Venice as a result of tourism. Because of the world fascination with this island, a hallmark of European culture, Venice is becoming a museum-city, devoid of local inhabitants and, therefore, of life, but continuing to host 60,000 daily visitors.
