Piazza Abbazia
Finale Ligure - third prize
Despite of being related to one of the most important abbey of XVII centrury, this square is currently a leftover in the urban fabric, with no connections to the other parts of the city and without a clear function within the urban structure. Our proposal aims to reintegrate the square into the urban fabric and its history, establishing a clear relation with the beautiful complex of Santa Maria Pia. The result is the creation of a leaf-shaped urban landscape that opens to the city.
