In Italy, a ban on large cruise ships in Venice's famous lagoon began this month.

Activists have fought for decades for the super-size vessels to be banned. They argue the ships pollute the waterways and overwhelm a city not built to handle cruises that size and the thousands of passengers they carry.

Giovanni Legorano, a correspondent for the Wall Street Journal in Venice, joins host Scott Tong.

This segment aired on August 9, 2021.
