There’s no CHANGE without VISION.
This is how the Zeche Zollverein transformed a decadent coal industry in a thriving cultural hub.
Since 2001, one of Germany’s largest industrial cores that had been operating for nearly 200 years for the production of coke, has been inscribed in the UNESCO list of Wolrd Heritage Sites.
We asked Zollverein’s CEO Prof. Hans-Peter Noll to tell us about the many social and structural challenges of the transformation process for our upcoming documentary Dreaming Taranto produced by Mapp Media.
