Between the 10th and 12th of May, the Italian Blue Growth and the Port Authority System (PAS) of the Eastern Ligurian Sea organized the “DePortibus” Festival in La Spezia, focusing on several key port issues and innovative ways to rebuild the relationship with the city. On Saturday 11th of May, our Director of the Agenda 2030, José Sánchez, joined the panel on port city integration virtually, with a particular focus on the new cruise publication “Cruise Port City Compass” and on Port Centers. The panel was moderated by Monica Fiorini from the PAS of the Eastern Ligurian Sea, while Noemi Frascella from the PAS of the Ionian Sea was the other invited speaker.
