Civitanova Marche has developed by neglecting territorial characteristics and compromising the ecological connections between hill and coast. The need to transform the port becomes an opportunity to reflect on design strategies - the subject of our reflection - involving the entire system of urban vegetated spaces. After describing the geographical and landscape characteristics of the place, and based on some international and national experiences, the article suggests a project to reconfigure the port area as part of the green infrastructure. We hypothesize for the port the role of a ‘condenser’ where the hilly, coastal and urban landscape intertwine allowing the dynamic coexistence of different users, uses, practices, spaces, and materials.
