Sir: I think Anna Somers Cocks has missed the point in her article about Venice entitled "That sinking feeling - again" (9 December).

It is well known in Italy that the reason for the reluctance of the Venetians to put up the money for the flood prevention scheme is because they think that if they delay, then the EU will provide the money instead.

Venetians are more than astute in matters of finance.
