Video: Lungarno Torrigiani collapsed Publiacqua reports disruption of water service in Florence and surrounding areas


This morning at 6.30 a.m. a hole opened in the main center of Firenze, on Lungarno Torrigiani, between Ponte Vecchio, Firenze – Italy and Ponte alle Grazie. The collapse involved about twenty cars that were parked, “No injuries, but damage: heavy damage” were the words of the Mayor of Florence Dario Nardella.
The place is one of the most charming places of the city: on the other side of the river there are the buildings of the Uffizi Gallery.

Today the Palazzo Pitti in Florence museums will be closed for the entire day. The onlyGiardino di Boboli will be open, with reduced ticket of 1 euro.

  1. Why was this area closed to parking fir almost three months in 2015?

    Was there some warning that there was a problem with the water supply piping at that time?

    Could this disaster have been avoided??
