Institution profile

VdV S.r.l. was established in 2003 to plan, set up and manage recreational boating facilities and services in the Venice lagoon as well as to use nautical businesses as a tool to help regenerate and revitalise degraded local areas. In 2004 VdV opened a marina on Certosa Island, Polo Nautico Vento di Venezia, a multi purpose center for nautical activities with the aim of revitalizing the abandoned island and make it usable, through the establishment of economic activities and services for residents and tourists. The marina includes a boatyard for the construction and maintenance of traditional Venetian crafts, technical support facilities for all kinds of leisure craft, training and promotional activities for water sports and a nautical school. The island also has a mooring facility for all types of boats and leisure craft, as well as a hotel with a bar and restaurant.
In order to pursue its mission of regenerating Certosa Island, VdV S.r.l. completed a study for the renovation of the island’s buildings and open spaces, entering a public-private partnership that won the tender to manage the entire area for the next 50 years.
