Passing speedboats on Pellestrina, Venice

Dec 10, 2019, 02:27 PM
Pellestrina is an idyllic, unspoilt little island in the south of the Venetian lagoon, much less frequented by tourists than the likes of Lido or Murano. Here we're sitting on harbour side of this unusually long, thin island, enjoying an unspoilt and peaceful view that's only interrupted by the roaring of passing speedboats and motorboats every few minutes. In the background you can hear lapping waves, children playing, the occasional dog bark - and then the right-to-left passing of 1, 2 and then 3 motorboats. Recorded by Cities and Memory.
