The aim of the Kenzo Tange Master Plan for Jesolo was to transform it from a seaside resort to a leisure town livable all year round. The Urban Plan had the same aim. The planning process, in some ways innovative, has been spoilt by an excessive offer for new buildings and often supported beyond reason, between contradictions, manipulations and elusions, to be used as a stake to play in negotiations. Some good architecture has been sometimes obtained, but this result can’t hide a new form of speculation.
