The ’Second Chance’ Project has been launched
after the completion of the restoration works in April 2011.

It has been approved in the framework of the European Programme Central Europe 2007-2013 and it is aimed at the revitalisation of abandoned industrial zones by transforming them in cultural and creative spaces: besides Venice, the cities of Leipzig, Nuremberg, Krakow and Ljubljana are involved
The renovations of the Porta Nuova Tower at the Arsenale have been finalised.
