This section of three papers which address a both complex and urgent Venetian question: that of design for it. Starting from two photos by Berengo Gardin and a unique 2005 design from his studio, Vittorio Gregotti reflects on the paradoxes of cruise liner tourism and looks at the possible meaning of the term ‘modernity’ in the system of the lagoon. Sergio Pascolo (Iuav University of Venice) sets the cornerstones of this complex system, which hinges on the two endpoints of Porto Marghera and the ancient city centre, within thinking based on studies and designs produced in the Venice Faculty of Architecture. Andrea Di Franco discusses the connection between Gregotti’s design for the new tourist terminal and the complex history and morphology of the lagoon environment in which the design is set.
