In this image taken on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020, people walk at the Burano island, Italy. The Venetian island of Burano's legacy as a fishing village remains the source of its charms: the small colorful fishermen's cottages, traditional butter cookies that were the fishermen's sustenance at sea and delicate lace still stitched by women in their homes. As the island's population dwindles, echoing that of Venice itself, so too are the numbers of skilled artisans and tradespeople who have kept the traditions and economy alive. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno)
