Venti di Cultura Italy has recently created a new board game called ''Arsenal'' for Venice. Venti di Cultura decided to approach the difficult issue of the relaunch and revitalization of the historical Arsenale (shipyard) of Venice, where different stakeholders are managing the area with little success in terms of a general and shared vision of the future of the area, with a board game. The game plays a role of a “change maker” where politics and strategies have failed, with the aim to bring together around a table all the involved stakeholders and find a new and unusual approach to a collaborative process. It is a collaborative game - where either participants win or loose, but together - could be a test for a wider discussion on the future of the Arsenale. This new game will be introduced by Francesco Calzolaio and Marta Moretti and tested by all partners and game experts at Intercult.
