3. Isola di MuranoMurano San Michele in Isola is a Roman Catholic church, located on the Isola di San Michele, a small islet sited between Venice and Murano, which once sheltered a Camaldolese monastery , but now houses the main cemetery of the city. The monastery was mostly demolished in the 19th-century, but the church remains, originally rebuilt starting in 1469. The church is dedicated to Saint Michael , the holder of the scales on Judgement Day, a fit guardian of the sleep of the faithful dead. The island cemetery now includes the land of the formerly separate island of San Cristoforo. This church is sometimes referred to as San Michele di Murano, although this islet is separate from islands comprising that town. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Vajont disaster (October 9, 1963)
On October 9, 1963, at 22:39, there was a landslide from the northern slope of Mount Toc, located on the border between the provinces of Belluno (Veneto) and Udine (at the time, now Pordenone, Friuli-Venezia Giulia) , broken off as a result of rising waters of the artificial lake over an altitude of 700 meters (above sea level) by the management wanted to test the system, which combined with a situation of abundant and unfavorable weather conditions (heavy rain), and added to severe negligence in the management of potential hazards due to particular hydrogeological conditions of the slope of Mount Toc, triggered the disaster. At 22:39 that day, about 270 million cubic meters of rock (one volume nearly three times the water contained in the reservoir) slid at a speed of 30 m / s (108 km / h) in the reservoir below (which contained about 115 million m³ of water at the time of the disaster) created by the Vajont dam, causing a flood wave tricuspid exceeded 100 m above the top of the dam, and that in part went up the opposite slope destroying all settlements along the banks of the lake in the municipality of Erto and Casso, in part (about 25-30 million m³) climbed over the artifact (which remained largely intact although deprived of the top part) pouring into the valley of the Piave, almost completely destroying the country spar and its neighbors. There were 1917 victims referred to in 1450 to Blyth, 109 in Codissago and Castellavazzo, 158 in Erto e Casso and 200 from other common.
For this video were used parts of 2 tracks on the album Fais que ton rêve soit plus long que la nuit (1971), composed by Vangelis Papathanassiou.
