Venice, Italy (October 30, 2013) — L’Agence France-Presse is reporting on a new development announced earlier today by Alberto Zaperla:
“The 80 million euro ($110 million) leisure centre ‘will not be an amusement park’ with rides only, Alberto Zamperla of Zamperla told AFP as he explained the plan to transform the artificial island of San Biagio, an old dump site, into a theme park with a cultural slant.
“Zamperla, the company behind two-thirds of the rides at Eurodisney in Paris, hopes to clean up four decades of rubbish on the four-hectare (nine acre) site at the entrance to the Giudecca Canal and transform it into a centre of fun, history and learning — if it can get the necessary authorisation.
“‘We’re talking about the history of Venice — one of my passions — but done my way,’ Zamperla said.
“‘I know what people like, I know my job. We have built theme parks in the US, Russia, Iraq, Mexico and North Korea, China and Thailand,’ he said.
“Zamperla, who among others boasts turning Germany’s Kalkar nuclear power plant into an amusement park and creating Denmark’s popular Tivoli Gardens, has teamed up with Venice’s Ca’ Foscari University Foundation for this latest project.”
