Urban renewal of the historic centre of Forenza (PZ)

Forenza (PZ), Italy
CATA society srl
Financed by the Leader Programme European Community
Project team: Arch. Corrado Landi

The main square of Forenza is located off the main street in the middle of Mediaeval buildings. It is the place where the people of the town congregate and contains the war memorial and buildings of cedar wood and holmoak. The work entailed installing a long and slightly curved stone bench on two levels on a slope and built on two pieces of level ground, the lower being at street level. At the side of the square an old staircase has been reinstated to connect the public space to the belvedere which is on a lower level.
