Ports continue to be separate from their cities. The line of separation between city and port is a line of tension, conflict, opposing interests and the interaction of often incompatible realities. In many port cities, this line materialises in barriers, fractures and impassable divides which impede the port’s own view of itself. How can we transform this line of separation into opportunity and resources? How can we bring the city back to the port, at the same time, guarantee the port its autonomous function? This is the theme of waterfront redevelopment in Italy.
