Venice Paparazzi‘s sky phenomena specialist Alex Stowell here.  With special glasses, shoe box configurations and various lighting diffusers, Venetians everywhere stared at the sky to catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse.  Though Venice did not get the totality effect that some of the country did, it was non the less spectacular.  Here an excerpt from wikipedia to school us on exactly what went down.  And, check out some iPhone pics we took around the V of folks taking it all in.

The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 was a total eclipse visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts.  Prior to this event, no solar eclipse had been visible across the entire contiguous United States since June 8, 1918; not since the February 1979 eclipse had a total eclipse been visible from anywhere in the mainland United States.  The path of totality touched 14 states, and the rest of the U.S. had a partial eclipse.
