A city without roads presents logistical problems.  Most of us take for granted our ability to bring large and bulky items to our front doors, or failing that rely upon a delivery service to do so (though the reputation of at least one such company in the UK for throwing items over your garden wall might be a deterrent).

I did watch a tumble dryer being man-handled from boat to steps at a water-door one day and it didn’t fill me with confidence; far better to rely upon a porter unloading at a broad fondamenta and bringing it to a drier entrance in my view.

In modo sicuro a casa tua!
