COCAI EXPRESS: FOOD DELIVERY IN VENICE

Last Monday we had a call with two founders of Cocai Express, a new food delivery start up born in Venice during the lockdown with the aim of helping local restaurants to deliver food for Venetian citizens.

Don’t be scary, you’ll not receive your food through seagulls (in this case I don’t think that you’d receive anything 🙂 ), but Cocai runners are guys that will take you the food that you’ve ordered through the App.

We, Venice by Venetians and Venice in Pattern, are going to tell you everything about this interesting figure and his great contribution to Venice, in particular in the Arsenal.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: HOW’S VENICE?

It’s been already six months since the start of the Italian lockdown imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Althought the isolation has probably been the most necessary method to slow down the illness and allow hospitals to better manage their spaces and capacities, the consequences for commerce and tourism have been really serious. The tertiary sector is facing a powerful crisis, which is hitting all the Italian cities, including Venice.

A SPECIAL VISIT IN THE BASILICA DI SAN MARCO MUSEUM

The first thing you see when you entered is this, and what can we say about it? It is amazing!!!

A thin island that stretches for about twelve kilometers, it is bordered at the ends by the ports of San Nicolò and Malamocco, connected to Venice and equipped with roads, with a thirty-hectare pine forest behind of the sea and the Blue Flag which often rewards the cleanliness of the water.
