Letter: Venice insured

Sir: Your feature on La Fenice (31 January) is touching and no doubt many people worldwide will put money towards this apparently deserving cause.

Before doing so, however, they should ensure that the cost of complete repair and refurbishment is not already covered by an appropriate insurance policy. If the theatre management have their wits about them, it should not be necessary for Luciano, and others, to dip into their millions.

Also, there will be no lack of insurance advice in Venice - half the Piazza is housed by Assicurazioni Generali.

Yours faithfully,
