During the 90’s, the main object was oriented on the will to involve different bodies, active inside the city in various ways, into taking responsibilities for important issues regarding the city’s economic life, first of all the demographic decay in the historical center and the growing lack of balance between the role of Venice and the more intense development of the North-East region. The initiatives taken year after year to investigate these issues gave rise to specific interests on behalf of local administrations and of the academic and entrepreneurial milieu, so that it is now possible to think about planning tasks of a more advanced level compared to that of mere cultural prick.
