The canal that connects the Adriatic Sea with Ravenna is a waterway of 13 kilometres. The final part – the Docklands of Ravenna – in close connection with the city’s historical centre and the railway station, is now case to a radical redesign.
Due to the harbour’s expansion of productive activity, 200.000 sqm additional are going to redensify this part of the city within the next years, organised around a system of green spaces and connected by a substantial environmental path. A system of water refi nement will contribute to the eligibility of the entire water system of the canal, bringing back to life the docklands’ unique potentiality for free time activity and other service, work and commercial functions.
