MESTRE - GENERAL INFORMATION:

Mestre was incorporated within the official city limits of Venice in 1926.  From that point on the mayor of Venice has been responsible for an area twice the size of the original island site of the city.  The incorporation of Mestre has caused many urban problems.  The space and potential for expansion on the mainland, the decreased cost of living, and the plentitude of schools and jobs has lured Venice’s population away from the Historic Core. 

Although, the thought of cutting Mestre loose is appealing, the district is crucial to Venice.  The Port of Maghera, an area of high industrial and shipping activity, lies within the city limits.  These factories and ports are crucial to Venice, essentially acting as the city Central Business District and keeping Venice in the global economy.  However, Maghera threatens Venice by creating the possibility of an oil spill in the lagoon and generating water and air pollution.
