ASC Students Present Port Project to Mayor of Sorrento

As students enrolled in the Director of Sant'Anna Institute (formerly Sorrento Lingue Institute), contacted the mayor's press secretary and found that there was a great deal of interest in what the Alfred State groups were doing, and from there, plans were made to have the students present their projects to the mayor and the city council. The student designs will give the city a number of potentially beneficial improvements to consider.

Early on, we asked Fabio Fiorentino, a local architect, to speak to the students about the history of the development of Marina Piccola over the past 200 years. Fiorentino, along with his father Alessandro, has done some design work in the past related to the port, and both are deeply interested in the history of Sorrento and the upgrading of the existing port.

Most importantly, the project, and the presentation to the city, will open a design dialog between ASC students and the city of Sorrento.
