The contribution of the Emilia-Romagna Region to the project is mainly given by the role of coordination and guarantee for the implementation of a passenger terminal and a maritime station, both well connected with the principal road and rail, European and local transport networks and, generally, with all the local transport systems. The connection with the strategic transport corridors is necessary to give to the node of Ravenna the accessibility to the main Italian and European markets, boosting cruise transport and incentivising short-range services in the Adriatic sea. Northern Adriatic should be particularly considered as a link between the eastern Mediterranean and central Europe.
The role of the Region is supporting the collaboration between different subjects to resolve problems which hinder a rapid implementation of projects, specifying the timeline of intervention, in accordance with local authorities, with the aim of achieving common projects and pursue, as in this case, the strategy of a strict integration between neighbouring countries in the Adriatic area.
The Port of Ravenna is the only port of the Emilia-Romagna and is considered a strategic infrastructure for the development of transport and logistics in the region.
