location and site characteristics
The urban park Via del Campetto is situated near the historical city centre and mainly surrounded by residential areas.The area is flat for the greatest part but it presents a south directed light slope.The park connects two different areas of the city: the historical one with older houses and very small shops and an area characterised by new buildings of medium density, some of these under construction. Public and private transports ensure a good accessibility.
The area has been equipped with public lighting. But anyway the park is a disused and derelict area which cannot be utilized because of the absence of paths, other equipments and facilities.
A preparatory assessment study led to a preliminary project foreseeing the layout of the area. The executive project produced short after has been approved by the municipality administration.
The pilot project aims at becoming the city’s green heart to be used by all social classes and age groups as a meeting and entertainment place.
