Debate at the Propeller Club of Venice on recreational boating in the lagoon

Examine the institutional responsibilities in

Last week, boating has been the focus of a meeting on "Venice and its lagoon: a heart in fibrillation Water", organized by the International Propeller Club Port of Venice with the aim of taking stock of the controversy that saw opposite the City of Venice, Port Authority and the Water Authority on its expertise in lagoon waters. The club said that to unleash the "brawl" was the position taken by the mayor of Venice, Giorgio Orsoni, which opposed the request for the grant given to the Port Authority of Venice Yacht Pier (VYP) to put in place a pier for the docking of mega-yachts in the basin of San Marco claiming their institutional responsibilities when the variation in Title V of the Constitution entrusts the power to municipalities on tourism and recreation, and even facilities for recreational boating.

During the meeting, the captain Claudio Mollica, Chief Technical and Administrative Unit of the Port of Venice, has shown how different are the administrative capacity in the lagoon, often a cause of confusion for the layman. Of all the institutional figures above the Water Authority of Venice, for the purpose of the hydraulic regime lagoon, which has jurisdiction for the entire lagoon is classified as maritime domain. With the appropriate provisions of this state property is transferred for use maritime and port that carries the Maritime Authority police and the Port Authority which manages the state-owned areas for concessions. The Grand Canal and the canals of the historic center are administered for the purpose of waterway police, the City, while the remaining internal channels for the same purposes of the lagoon are regulated by the Water Authority and Inspectorate of Porto, now regional body. A close under the action, the will of the central legislature, the Province of Venice in charge of drawing up a regulation for the coordination of local navigation in the lagoon.

In keeping with this framework the construction of docks, moorings and moorings for recreational boating in the lagoon is therefore subject to the issuance of the concession by the Water Authority and the Port Authority, the latter only only to the port.

It goes without saying - noted the official - and outside of these areas for the future licensing of recreational boating is the sole responsibility of the City of Venice and that, ultimately, by virtue of the constitutional law No. 3 / 2001 which implemented the reform of Title V of the Constitution.
