The 100 years of Porto Marghera, the Venice brownfield
Greenersites will be presented in the frame of the anniversary celebrations
This year is the centenary of Porto Marghera: 100 years ago, on July 23 1917, the Industrial pole officially came to light with the signature of a convention between the then Prime Minister Paolo Boselli, the mayor of Venice at the time Filippo Grimani and Giuseppe Volpi di Misurata, president of SAVE ("Anonymous Society of the Venice Industrial Port").
This anniversary is very significant for GreenerSites, since Porto Marghera is the Venice brownfield where all the local pilot actions (carried out by the City of Venice, the Veneto Region and the Venice Port Authority) will be focused. GreenerSites activities and outputs will contribute to the development of the area in the light of economic and environmental sustainability. The project will be presented among the celebrations: a full program of events, exhibitions, conferences, seminars, educational itineraries to know the past, live the present and imagine the future of the area.
