Fondazione Santagata works in support for the implementation of the management plan of the UNESCO site “Genova, le Strade Nuove e il Sistema dei Palazzi dei Rolli” 2020-24.


The goal of the work is the effective implementation of the strategies identified by the updating of the Management Plan 2020-24 drawn up in 2018 and 2019, which provided for the definition of a new governance structure and which identified in the structure of the Economic Development Innovation Projects Department of the Municipality the new referent.


The Foundation’s activities include:

  • technical assistance for the implementation of the management plan, through an executive plan of the Management Plan, as a tool that integrates with the planning and action tools already in use within the Municipality that defines in detail the strategic guidelines for future activities in the coming years, in a commensurate way with resources and development potential;
  • construction of a system for monitoring and evaluating actions;
  • organization of opportunities for discussion and training useful for strengthening skills.


The activity is realized in collaboration and for the Municipality of Genoa – Economic Development Innovation Project Department.
