2022 Port Days

In the week between 7 and 14 October, from Friday to Friday, the port opens its gates to the city for the “Port Days” event, organised by the North Adriatic Sea Port Authority to let citizens and students learn about the ports of Venice and Chioggia from first-hand experience.
There are many new proposals for primary and secondary school students planned with the help of port training institutes, which are among the organizers of the event. For the first time, initiatives involve also the port and the community of Chioggia, with a view to show how the Veneto’s port system as a whole can be a driving force for the economy capable of offering high quality jobs while enabling exchanges – not only of goods but also of industrial and logistic cultural know-how.
The 2022 edition sees more partners actively contributing to the success of the event: in addition to the Coast Guard – Harbour Master’s Offices of Venice and Chioggia, the Venice Port Community and The International Propeller Club – Port of Venice, partners include the Municipality of Venice, the Municipality of Chioggia, Confindustria Area Metropolitana Venezia-Rovigo, Ca’ Foscari University, IUAV University, the Italian Navy, Venice Heritage Tower, the Logistics and Intermodal Training Centre – CFLI, ITS Academy Marco Polo, Compagnia della Marineria Tradizionale – “Il Nuovo Trionfo”, Darsena (Dock) Le Saline, Kayak Club Chioggia, and the Association Lido Oro Benon.

“This year we have raised the bar,” said North Adriatic Sea Port Authority President Fulvio Lino Di Blasio, “by doubling the number of initiatives and including Chioggia, whose port and community are integral parts of the Veneto port system. This is one of the commitments we made to the stakeholders when we prepared our Operational Plan and resolved that fostering dialogue with local communities should be one of our five strategic lines of action. In keeping with the national Port Days’ focus on the younger generations, we have designed many initiatives targeted at young visitors to help them discover the values and culture of sea-related professions and understand that the port is an import asset in the region and a mine of qualified job opportunities. I wish to thank all the companies, institutions, and associations that have accepted to join our team, adding quality to this event while contributing their time and resources to the community”.
