About This Book

Designed and built in only 15 months, the restructuring of the former Arsenale at La Maddalena in Sardinia,  was initiated with the purpose of hosting the 2009 G8 Summit, the scope of work included reclaiming and rebuilding an abandoned and contaminated site of 155 thousand square meters.  The convention centre is composed series of business and recreational buildings that transformed the area into one of the major nautical hubs of the western Mediterranean. An entirely new port was completed with infrastructure for sailing, tourism, and nautical training. This book presents this extraordinary feat, narrating the collective endeavors of the architects, engineers, developers, technicians, contractors, government officials and the over 1,600 workers that worked round the clock to complete a project dedicated to the rebirth and economic development.
