Yet another fundamental issue in our project is the development of a phytoremediation park. Though its main purpose would be to sanitise the area polluted by the petrochemical activities carried out in the past, the facilities can also be used for the effluents from the port and the cruise ships.
This technique consists basically in reproducing a humid environment in waterproof basins, where water flows from one basin to the other, being treated gradually by the plants growing in them. The species selected belong to the typical florae of the venetian lagoon, ensuring an optimal integration with the existing landscape.
This park would be closely connected to the existing San Giuliano park, consolidating the area into a “green waterfront” on the venetian lagoon.
