You may have noticed the new banner I posted. It shows a number of bottles on a shelf, one of which contains water from the historically high acqua alta in December 2008. This cafe bottled some and stuck it up on the shelf. It was still there last time I visited.
If you want to see it for yourself, here are some directions. It’s on the main street between Campo San Aponal and Campo San Polo, almost facing Da Sandro. I’m sorry I don’t know the name of the cafe. It’s one of the traditional looking ones, not modernized. If someone knows the name, please post it so I can give them credit for their creative approach to memorializing this acqua alta event.
