Prepared at the request of the City of Venice, this report explores the implications
for Venice of the adoption in 2014 of new legislation on the governance of metropolitan
cities. It builds on the analysis of the OECD Territorial Review of Venice (2010),
analysing a number of different “functional geographies” of the larger urban region
centred on Venice. The report argues that, although the new legislation offers some
opportunities for Venice to address local challenges, it is important to look beyond
the Metropolitan City of Venice as defined in the new legislation and to pursue greater
governance co-ordination across the larger city region that encompasses Padua, Treviso
and Venice (PaTreVe). Co-operation in the fields of transport, land use, environmental
protection and water resources management is particularly important; there are also
significant opportunities in the fields of culture and tourism. The report also outlines
a possible way forward for governance co-operation at the level of PaTreVe.
