DUR-Paola Giampietri _tailleOKThe Port of Genoa is unique in as much as it extends along a 22-kilometre stretch of coastline, effectively surrounded by the city, with the result that a large part of the working port coastline has the dual function of urban waterfront. Consequently, the Port Authority seeks to pave the way for a competitive port and for a healthy local economy, whilst also focusing greater attention on environmental issues.
The new Port Master Plan is a bold response to the need to identify a new model for port development, in collaboration with local government and the other public and private stakeholders, and to improve relations between the port and the city which in Genoa live side by side.
There are specific areas where this dichotomy is heightened. The Prà container terminal, the cruise/ferry areas in the historical part of the port and the shipbuilding / repair sector are three examples of the complex relationship between enhanced port activities and the surrounding urban fabric and they are also examples of concerted planning on the part of Local Government and the Port Authority.
A mix of planning ideas and “immaterial” actions has been proposed to meet both port operational and urban regeneration requirements and to improve the integration of the working port.

After graduation in Transport and Maritime e Economics in 2003, Paola Giampietri specialised in Maritime and Port Economics and Management with a Master Degree.
She joined the Genoa Port Authority in 2004 where she worked in the Planning and Development Department, with the responsibility of port strategic planning, concession agreements management, port competition analysis, maritime and logistics studies, macroeconomic researches.
Since the beginning of 2014, Paola is in charge of the Port Master Plan Office, whose tasks mainly concerns the elaboration of the new Genoa Port Master Plan, the evaluation of the compliance of building projects with the Port Master Plan, the planning of the new port infrastructure developments and the joint planning with the Genoa Municipality of the port-city interface areas.

DUB_Pietro AngeliniAll major projects needs water to operate. In the nautical industry, the growing size of boats needs the immediate vicinity of the water. The Italian nautical sector creates one-off and for this needs many specialized labour skills of handmade excellence: furniture, upholstery, and metal trim. This involves a number of important outsourcing and this is not always easy to make clear to citizens who take into account only direct and not indirect numbers. In addition, the finished product is a valuable asset, which is often necessary to keep in confidence far from the people and from the curious. It will be interesting to explore the question of socio-economic activity of Benetti, the world’s motor boats company creating ships over 30 meters.  It will be interesting to present also the impact on the port city territory – its ability to integrate physically – and to face challenges to ensure the sustainable development of the activity.

Pietro Angelini has a experience matured within the area of company consultancy, company organization, professional training, human resource, marketing and communication specialized in yacht business/marine industries. He is the Executive manager of NAVIGO scarl, the innovation pole and cluster of nautical department in Tuscany, where the most important yacht shipyards in viareggio like Azimut Benetti are associated (over 350 nautical companies). He works also as a event Coordinator for YARE yacht refit exhibition, a Journalist for marine industry publications and a public speaker for international events. He has coordinated following projects :
– EU Project (Leonardo, Life and trans frontally collaborations)
– Italian National Project (MIUR, Industria 2015 – Ministry of Education and Ministry of Economy)
– Italian Regional Project (POR,FESR,FSE)
