A di città

Place: Rosarno (Italy).
Date: 2012.
Time: One week.
Space: Vacant lot, public space.
Cost: Unknown.
Public actors: Municipality of Rosarno.
Private actors: Collectif ETC, students, citizens

The project is about urban regeneration of public vacant spaces with an interdisciplinary approach (from art to architecture). During the one week workshop have taken part architecture students, city residents, various artist (Ivan, Spy…) and Collectif ETC. Three empty spaces have been chosen as locations of daily cultural events and participation in designing and auto-constructing. The main site used to be a storage for waste materials by the Municipality: during the workshop they have been used by the group of architecture students, who divided the space into five parts with different uses (the results of collecting desires and ideas from the residents): a garden, an outdoor lounge, a gazebo, a football pitch, a playground. But when the workshop ended, the Municipality closed the area probably due to safety problems, and the residents of Rosarno can not access to the renewed public space.
