  • Barbara LinoEmail author
Part of the UNIPA Springer Series book series (USS)


This chapter defines in what way the seaside and the waterfront can be place of conflicts among infrastructures, production, unplanned urbanisation, bathing tourism and many other activities. The last section of the chapter describes synthetically the study case of Saint-Nazare Submarine base and the terms of regeneration of a typically place of conflict, like a military area connected with the waterfront.
