Venice with its lagoon and the large Porto Marghera area are significant in different and complementary ways because of their potential to become paradigmatic examples for a sustainable modification of the area based on the specific settlement quality of the context, which is not separate from it and not in contrast with it. Venice is a model, not because of its unrepeatable forms, but because of its intrinsic sustainability which is the extraordinary balance between the artificial and the natural, between land and water, between heaviness and lightness, between culture and production, between tradition and innovation, between liquid and solid, between material and immaterial, between greater and less, between the ancient and the new. It is an exemplary urban model because it is a settlement system based on the centrality of real humans as they are perceived and experienced.
