La Spezia, Italy (PortSEurope) June 19, 2018 – The President of the Liguria Region Giovanni Toti, The Mayor of La Spezia, Pierluigi Peracchini, the President of Autorita’di Sistema Portuale del Mar Ligure Orientale (AdSP – Eastern Ligurian Sea Port Authority) Carla Roncallo, the General Director of the State Property Agency Roberto Reggi and Mauro Coletta, General Manager of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transports, have signed the memorandum of understanding for the construction of the new waterfront of La Spezia on the terrace of the Castello San Giorgio. The cornerstone of the change project has been laid out that will completely redesign the urban structure of the sea front.
All the signatory bodies, for their respective competences, have agreed to launch proceedings to conclude a significant portion of the area, until now territorially in charge of the AdSP, as areas of the maritime domain, will be transferred to the city of La Spezia.
The waterfront reorganisation provision represents an opportunity to outline the overall strategy aimed at developing the relationship between La Spezia and the sea. A bond destined to strengthen, thanks to which the city is preparing to carve out a new role through the strategic revision of its original vocation: from a port to a metropolis of water, able to attract different activities that enhance and strengthen the local economy.
