Cottonera – renewal of former docks area

Malta is a special place on the map of Europe. It successfully draws on the EU financial resources and allocates a considerable part of them to the regeneration of architectural and urban tissue as well as to historic preservation. The film Malta, Cottonera – renewal of former docks area is a great example of this policy. Cottonera, or the three cities of Vittoriosa, Cospicui and Senglei, was intended as a city surrounded by fortifications. There were two worlds separated by walls: the industrial world inside the walls and the outside reality up to the harbor line, where ships entered the port. The aim of the Cottonera Waterfront project was to improve accessibility and mobility within the harbor, to launch new forms of transport and to create an environment that would foster building sustainable communities.
