The Coming Death of Venice


EN Recently La Repubblica on the 18th of July published a translation of an article by Anna Somers Cocks written originally for the New York Review of Books. The article deals with the future of Venice and of Porto Marghera.

He (Paolo Costa) thinks big and has plans to turn the port at Marghera on the mainland edge of the lagoon into a transport hub for merchandise on the planned EU east–west transport axis from Barcelona via Venice into the Balkans and Ukraine. The Venice-Marghera port would become the biggest in northern Italy, with goods coming up the Adriatic to Venice and fanning out from there by road and rail.
