This project is the result of a winning competition design, in collaboration with local architects. The intervention has transformed a degraded and car-oriented central public space into a pleasant, quiet and monumental area for tourists and citizens. Green and water have been the key elements of the design, combined with a measured use of local stones and respect for the high quality monumental built context. In the background of the project, the Duomo (cathedral) is respected and enhanced by the public space.
