Forte Marghera, Venice, Italy

Fortified heritage sites are significant assets for cultural heritage and local identity; thus an active role of local authorities in the valorisation, planning & management of these sites is extremely necessary. Consequently, the Municipality of Venice became the owner of 7 out of the 12 forts of the “Entrenched Camp” (2003). In 2004, Municipality of Venice has appointed Marco Polo System as subsidiary company for the ordinary maintenance of the fort areas, as well as for the elaboration of policy recommendations and to implement them at local level.

Working closely with Marco Polo System, Municipality of Venice gained a strong relationship not only with the so-called “Arco Latino“ area (Spain, France and Portugal), but also with the other Central and Eastern European countries, as well as with the Mediterranean ones, where it develops experiences and activities linked to forts recovery.
