We are in an area of the historical event of the city of Orzionuovi, which has several important historical backgrounds of which include a repeated presence of military architecture, largely responsible for its urban idiosyncrasies. However, it retains only a fraction of its historical legacy. The intervention area is a closed and unstructured terrain not accessible to the city, and belonging to the historic fabric of military character which unfortunately today has no remains. This is therefore, a place where history operates, not as a presence but as a memory.
The proposed project has two objectives, one is that the action should allow proper integration of the area into the urban fabric, and the other is to set it into a position regarding the debate between conservation and innovation, or in other words, to operate consistently with our history without sacrificing the contemporaneity, which is ultimately a key principal of the contest.
