Port of Genoa Mega-infrastructure Investment Programme


The Genoa Decree Law 130/2018 was enacted in the aftermath of the tragic collapse of the Morandi Bridge in August 2018. Within one year all the provisions introduced were successfully implemented or are in progress:  a package of wide-ranging measures which provided for the rapid reconstruction of the Bridge, supported the segregated businesses and residents left homeless by the incident and guaranteed the recovery of the port and logistic hub, strategic to the local and Italian economy. The reconstruction and opening of the new Genova San Giorgio Bridge, completed in 18 months, is now often referred to as an exceptional model for best practices: the ability to restore state-of-the-art infrastructure in a fast and efficient way has had a strong signalling effect worldwide.

Within this framework, the Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority adopted a Recovery Action Plan, funded by a 3 billion euro Mega-Infrastructure Investment Programme, addressing the key European transport and logistic priorities of the Port of Genoa.  To date, the port is on track in the implementation of a far-reaching overhaul in terms of its accessibility by sea, air, rail and road, shipyard expansion, waterfront redevelopment and green policies. A range of 40 major infrastructure projects, set to be instrumental in establishing the Ports of Genoa as a more accessible, sustainable, intermodal and digital hub, are underway and represent a moment of rebirth for both the Port and the City.

This webpage provides a comprehensive update on all the projects underway in the Port of Genoa, in addition to general information, an interactive map and follow-up events dedicated specifically to the implementation of the Mega-Infrastructure Investment Programme.
