The oldest corner of the port, which was transformed by a great reuse program into the most attractive tourist center in the city.
The Mandraccio, the "natural" landing place of the city sheltered by the rocks of the pier, lost its functionality in the twentieth century, with a port system increasingly developed on the west side. The program of reorganization and reuse of the piers in front of the medieval city, enriched with new cultural and tourist functions, revealed the extraordinary appeal of a unique place, enhanced with the decisive contribution of Renzo Piano.
