The Trans­formation of European Historical Ship­­yards and Arsenals (EHS&A)

Aula Saraceno, Ca’ Foscari University, Fondamenta S. Giobbe, 873, 30121 Venezia VE

The transformation of historic shipyards and arsenals into heritage sites poses crucial issues for preservation, protection and use, with significant socio-economic impacts. Their changing uses—from production to other activities (e.g. exhibitions, shops, housing)—have detached them from their original meanings and imbued them with new ontologies that somehow co-habit with the old ones, leading to tensions between preservation and innovation. Practically, this has also brought managerial challenges far subtler than generating income and managing visitor flows: sites must trade-off the different and often conflicting priorities of preservation, productivity, housing, visitor enjoyment, community engagement, etc., often taking place with a huge process of urban regeneration. For this project, we invite experts of major EHS&A during three workshops to discuss the process of transformation of these sites, with a particular lens on open access and access from citizens. This will provide a unique opportunity for discussing possible developments in general, and in particular for the Venice Arsenale. The initiative is co-organized by the University of Bologna and Oxford University, with the collaboration of a variety of institutions involved in the transformation of individual EHS. AIPAI will stream the three events.
