Colorful architecture all over the world
Burano – an island inhabited by fishermen. A bright finish was needed to ensure that they were returning home, and could see their island in the fog. Today the inhabitants of Burano paint their facades in bright colors following the instructs of City Hall. Under the law, the update of exterior decoration should be done every six months. Those who failed to meet the deadline, face fines. To change the color of the facade at its discretion, residents can not. They will have to apply to the municipality, which will propose a new variant of colors. All this is done to ensure that the island has not lost its attraction for tourists.
