DESCRIPTIONAn exhibit about the new Genova Urban Plan at Loggia di Banchi, Genova.
GENOVA TODAYGENOVA TOMORROW
This exhibition marks an important turning point for the city of Genova. It illustrates the journey that this ancient city is taking to respond to the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century: globalization, climate change, migration, economic and social change.
The new Piano Urbanistico Comunale (P.U.C.) establishes a vision of how Genova can evolve in a smart and sustainable way over the next decade, firmly grounded in its economic, social and cultural realities.
By opening the 16th century Loggia dei Banchi at the heart of Genova to the public Italys first stock exchange the exhibition re-establishes a dialogue with its citizens and its visitors about its present and its future.
Towards a new CITy PLan for GenovaCreating a new plan for a city is an exciting and complex challenge. It is a fine balancing act between the weight of history, the inertia of the recent past and present, and an ambitious but realisable vision for the future. A vision founded on the concepts of flexibility yet anchored to a system of shared values of co-existence, which can be understood easily and be adapted over time to new circumstances.
our aim has been to embrace this complexity in a process which sets high standards but can be accommodated within the democratic process of public debate.
The work carried out by the City of Genovas Urban Lab has been guided by renzo Piano who has taught us to reconnect the city with its seafront and preserve its precious natural contours by building on its architectural legacy and making the most of its natural and man-made assets (see figures 1 and 2). This involves limiting the amount of building on greenfield land and taking advantage of the citys exposure to sun and wind along its south-facing coast.
The urbanist richard Burdett has further developed this approach, providing Genova with the inspiration of other cities that have successfully turned themselves round, establishing a framework of success that gives rise to the Key Diagram (see figure 3) that will lead Genovas future over the next decades.

ePICenTre of THe MedITerraneanGenovas potential as a port-city stems from its continental geographical location at the very heart of the europe and The Mediterranean. Its territorial advantage is strongly compromised by deficits in access and infrastructure.
The new City Plan of Genova invests in connectivity as an economic generator, making the most of its connections to europe and its favourable location in The Mediterranean.

Valencia, Madrids natural harbor connected to the Spanish capital by a 350 kilometres toll-free motorway, attracts cargo ships and cruise liners along the Suez-Gibraltar route linking Asia to America across the Mediterranean. With over 3 million TEUs per year, Valencia is Spains major commercial port, and a leading centre of the West Med ports system for container traffic. Amongst the top ten ports in Europe and the top 50 in the world, Valencia has invested heavily in modernizing its infrastructure and upgrading its urban image.
The Marseilles-Fos harbor complex is the most significant petroleum port in the Mediterranean and the third in the world behind Rotterdam and Houston. It acts as a key hub in Europe for goods and passengers, with an efficient and extensive network of rail, road and water-based routes (as well as major oil distribution pipeline) that provides easy access to central European markets.
Rotterdam is the largest and most important port in Europe, acting as the main gateway for goods from south-east Asia and America. After occupying the top position in the world for decades, today it is the third largest port in the world with over 10 million TEUs per year. Its geographical position and sheltered location off the northern coast with direct links to the Atlantic Ocean, deep water docks and extensive capacity, is strenthened by access to an extensive rail, road and water-based transport system.
The port of Barcelona is connected to 850 other ports across the world and to the main commercial and urban centers of Spain and France through good road and rail connections, which have recently been enhanced. In order to improve its competitiveness, the port has benefitted from major investment by the city authorities leading to the repositioning of the Llobregat River and a substantial increase in harbor, dock and logistics facilities including a multi-modal hub for the storage and shipment of goods that are fully integrated with a logistics and distribution area, close to the airport and cruiser terminals.
Le Havre is Frances major port and the ninth largest in Europe, occupying a strategic location on the English Channel and the North Sea, well connected by road, rail and canals to a densely populated region which includes Paris and Rouen. The port is the subject of continued investment, expansion and modernization, with deep water docks that can accommodate large container ships throughout the year, with no tidal constraints, offeringthe fastest transit time for intercontinental trade between Europe and America.
Hamburg occupies an important position at the top of global rankings of the worlds major ports, resulting from its geographical location and a sustained 10-year planning and investment strategy which has created a modern and efficient layout with a state-of-the-art container port and a distripark, highly reliable services, a fast and inexpensive customs operation, and access to an extensive network of water, rail and road systems that provides quick access to European markets.
