The European city today represents an extraordinary place for the innovation and transformation of the relationship between project and urban events. In recent years, many large cities and smaller towns have initiated regeneration projects with interventions to transform the urban fabric and public space: in particular, many of them involve the transformation of the waterfront, and the preservation and revitalization of the architectural legacy. The convergence of changing urban, industrial and port conditions in many European cities such as Saint Nazaire, has accelerated strategies to restore the relationship between city and port. Concentrated around the port area near the World War II submarine base, the new projects have been instrumental in defining the ville croisière plan for tourism and culture.
