The same square, is a different square every day.


Design proposal for the regeneration of Piazza Martiri d’Ungheria, Vibo Valentia.

Special mention

The project for the regeneration of Piazza Martiri d’Ungheria, focuses on a new configuration of the shared spaces as an answer to a contemporary way of living the city by respecting the identity of the place and of the existing symbols, in order to relate with its new uses and the renewed necessities of urban and life qualities.

The project is characterized by a memorable design able to welcome accessories, changes, events, movement. Beside the physical regeneration of the square, also the community will be involved in the social regeneration of the area.

The keyword of the project is flexibility. The project has been imagined within its temporal dimension, by considering its behavior during the day or a week and its potential evolution in a longer amount of time. The project activates the guidelines to regenerate the surrounding urban environment and a process of redefinition of the historical and social identity of the city.
