Accessibility and  Development for the Re-launch of the Inner Adriatic Area

The project was cofinanced by Interreg Itlaia Slovenia Porgram and aimed at creating a metropolitan area between the Italian and Slovenian border, thanks to the integration of Slovenia in the Shengen area. The integration between the two areas in one macro area allowed citizens and territory to augment its level of fruition. The urban areas of Trieste and Capodistria, the port of Gorizia and Nova Gorica, the airports of Venice, Ronchi dei Legionari and Lubiana will be  linked together by a railway ring that will be completed around those areas. The transport issue is analized form several point of views in a global vision capable to link ports and airports as a territorial network. The governance of this transnational territorial system requires an institutional network able to work together as a whole territorial system.
