Port planning and development pdf
Strategic plan | Port of TacomaGenoa urban, economic and social development has always been inextricably linked to land morphology. The city extends along a narrow coastline which is mostly occupied by the port. Throughout its history Genoa has painfully conquered this thin strip of land, however, the lack of large areas, particularly suited to accommodate manufacturing plants, forced the Genoese to spread out toward the sea, nestled between land and water. Furthermore, like most of the other Mediterranean seaports, but unlike leading Northern European hubs, land morphology forced ports and cities into a difficult coexistence, often raising misunderstandings and disputes, which induced both parties, distinct but inextricably linked entities, to compete for the same land and still stubbornly ignore each other. Currently, although territorial conditions are still the same, cities and ports have completely changed their attitude targeting the more complicated and multifaceted port-city design and focusing on a mutual development plan. A specific strategy is required to evaluate, by exploiting all potentials generated by the merger between port industrial activities and urban business opportunities, the logical reasoning to achieve sustainable development and foster urban growth. The present scenario highlights a selection of plans and projects which tackled the issue of the city-port relationship in Genoa by adopting a specific approach.
