Topic Description:

In 2026, a new gigantic breakaway will allow the port to accommodate ultra-large container ships
and the new 8 Bil€ high-capacity, high-speed ‘Terzo Valico’ railway connection to the
Rhine–Alpine corridor will drastically reduce containers transit time to Italy, Switzerland and
Southern Germany.
A tunnel under the port, the new Waterfront designed by Renzo Piano and an underwater cable
providing greater capacity and quality internet connectivity between Europa and the rest of the
These are just the tips of the iceberg of billions of soft and hard infrastructural investments that
are set to bring Genoa back to its role of ‘Superba’ in the years to come.
Genoa is Monaco nearest largest shipping hub and its developments will surely bring useful
