The welcome of seafarers at Venice harbour

Venezia, 2002

CONTRIBUTION: research, interviews, project proposals, architectural design, editorial design
SUPPORTED BY: Venice Port Authority, Province of Venice

This publication, developed for my thesis in Architecture, served as a basis to design and realize the Seamen’s club at the Venice harbor. Starting from an in-depth analysis about the world of seafarers it developed a proposal, the result of which was a series of both ephemeral and permanent interventions, conceived to welcome and recognize the 200.000 seafarers who arrive every year. The work, inspired by the participation at the Ms3 project, was embedded in the Welcome in Venice project by StellaMaris’ friends association for seafarers.
