when lights are switched on
the lighthouse on Murano is painted white, with two wide black stripes that don't quite meet on the island side. You can I am not sure if there is any meaning to it, but it looks like somebody realized that there's not enough black paint and painted the sea side only - for the tower to look its best when you approach the island. How it looks when you are on the island was deemed less important.
the lights were being switched on everywhere on the lagoon when we were coming back to Venice from Burano,
