There are 1 comment on the story from Nov 13, 2009, titled Death in Venice: city stages its 'funeral' as the population sinks. In it, reports that:

VENICE is set to hold a symbolic funeral of itself today, as the population has fallen below the key figure of 60,000. The famous lagoon city's population has been dwindling over the past 50 years as locals are forced out by high rents and replaced by millions of tourists.
