OtrantoNow it’s official: the Council of Ministers has released funds earmarked for the construction of the Otranto Tourist Port, an approximately 50-million-euro project that includes nearly 500 berths, plus parking and shore facilities. Condotte d’Acqua SpA, a giant with a worldwide presence, will build the new marina.

This is a project that, as is often the case, has had a very arduous bureaucratic process and a fierce struggle by environmental groups. This is because it is not a project to modernize the existing port area, but a real new tourist marina along the coast, outside the one present today. Adding meat to the fire is an unfavorable opinion from ARPA Puglia (Regional Agency for Environmental Protection) this spring.

Do you know the area? What do you think? Are you for or against this new port?
