"The project aims to create a more dynamic system of multifunctional clusters that can better adjust the future changes in the growth of the city. A higher density allows to respect the original goals of the master plan placing all the functional clusters in the reclaimed area, thus preserving the linear villages. At the same time, the solution to the drainage problem gives the opportunity to create a new network of canals and water bodies that organize and structure the new urban fabric, becoming a crucial element for the public space. The new design maximizes the coast line, generating a higher land value that compensates the costs of the dredging and earthwork needed, making the development economically attractive." Nicola Saladino (2010)
