“The approval by the Senate of the Grandi Navi Decree is a very important step for the safeguarding of the heritage of Venice and its lagoon”, declares the Minister of Sustainable Infrastructures and Mobility, Enrico Giovannini, expressing satisfaction with the provision adopted by the Senate at first reading.
“A coordinated and systemic operation was carried out to make the whole area sustainable, excluding large ships from the Giudecca Canal, but not only. In recent months, huge economic resources have been made available to Venice – Giovannini recalls – and not only to protect the economic and environmental aspects. From the completion of the Mose to the related landscape works and the projects for the Venice area envisaged in the Pnrr, including interventions to increase port capacity and the resilience of infrastructures to climate change.
In addition, significant investments were made for local maritime and lagoon public transport, for the purchase of new ships and for the refurbishment of the docks. This is an overall operation that denotes a very strong attention of the Government and in particular of the Ministry to protect the cultural, artistic and landscape value of the city of Venice, but also to support the development of the city and its territory ”.
