This is the most strategic part for the development of the city, focus of the greatest urban projects of the last decade. It presents 4 related but diversified urban areas:
1 Northern Waterfront, characterized by security problems arising from the Great landslide of Ancona;
2 Northern Suburb Waterfront, urban area which includes Palombella district, the area surrounding the Railway station of Ancona and Archi district;
