The area is enclosed between the southern border of the city and the Chiaravalle Abbey: it has the potential to act as a hinge between a very dense urban area and a beautiful piece of agricultural landscape, but it suffers nowadays from a deep state of neglect, with illegal settlements and unhealthful living conditions. Our proposal tackles this difficult situation through its masterplan: it combines a big and redesigned park with sport facilities and high-density low-rise mixed use buildings which gather along a pedestrian a slow traffic and pedestrian path.
