And this can be done with our extraordinary city campus project by making the largest universities in Europe and the world come to Venice to set up their campuses, their places of teaching and research, so as to revitalize the city, not only from a demographic point of view, but from the point of view of attracting specializations and ideas to sustainable investments”.
