Build starts for Livorno

ITALY: Construction of the long-awaited Livorno Marina commenced last month (April). The joint venture with private yachting group Azimut Benetti and D-Marin will deliver a notable Mediterranean marina designed by Archea of Florence.

The entire project is expected to complete in June 2026 although parts of the marina will be available to customers ahead of schedule. There will be a total of 815 berths.
In an investment of €14-15 million, the project includes renovation of the docks, meeting spaces, leisure and entertainment amenities. Significant parts of the site will be reserved for restaurants, bars and offices. The marina will feature natural elements, such as trees and hedges, in place of fencing, solar panels to produce a significant proportion of energy, and rainwater recovery systems for irrigating green spaces.
Luca Salvetti, mayor of Livorno, said the City was delighted to have its own marina. “After 16 years, the procedure to effectively grant the concession was finalised,” he explains. “This represents another milestone in the development, growth and transformation of the city, which will benefit from the boost to the local economy in terms of both tourism and employment.”
