I thank all of my Tagliaferro, Taliaferro, TaliferoTellifero, Tolliver, Toliver cousins who promptly answer #LagoonCalling #NoContorta and sign our petition, thus honouring their Venetian roots.

I feel deeply grateful to each of you who already signed and to everyone of you who will sign in the next days. As most of my fellow Venetian citizens, I feel that we need everybody's help to stop a plan that would be damaging to Venice and to our lagoon. I feel very blessed I can ask for the help of my family in the world: please share this call with your families and friends and ask them to sign too. Venice is unique, it's beauty and art treasures are a fundamental heritage for all humanity.

The signing by Taliaferro/Tolliver family members is mentioned in the press release: Venice calls Brussels: stop dredging maxi- canals in our lagoon!

I am the spokesperson for US, so please don't hesitate to contact me for any press informations: Maristella Tagliaferro.
