In November, Venice recorded the most severe flooding since 1966. At its peak, the water level rose to 187 centimeters, flooding almost 50% of the city, including tourist spots. Then the water receded, but the emergency mode is still in effect in Venice.

Graffiti of the famous street artist Banksy was also affected. At the beginning of 2019, an image of a refugee girl in a life jacket appeared on a wall in Venice, in May the artist confirmed his authorship on Instagram.

The AP photo shows that the painted girl went almost halfway under the water. A local resident shared with CNN a picture where the water almost reaches her shoulders.
