Abstract: The port system is today one of the main pillars of transportations and trade. Italy is located at the centre of the Mediterranean See and of Europe, therefore the development of modern and competitive ports is of great importance for the country. The harbour of Genoa is a natural candidate to become one of the most important ports in the world. This positioning would constitute a factor of competitiveness and development for both the city of Genoa and the country as a whole. This paper analyzes first the determinants of success of a modern port and offers a comparison between the Ligurian port and that of Rotterdam. This comparison highlights the strengths and weaknesses of Genoa?s harbour with respect to Rotterdam?s. By means of a simulation, this paper shows the possible consequences of an enlargement of the Ligurian port.
