The project of urban requalification is part of the restructuring and the re-functioning of an industrial area. The project aims to link and increment the value of the site, both in the naturalistic and the landscape point of view, by connecting areas originally separated by the presence of a small river and the city bypass. The whole arrangement is articulated along one main green axis, the “Viale dei Platani”. South from the new residential area is the Strolling Park, which expands itself along the main axis, dedicated to walking and relaxing, as the word implies. In the western sector there is a successful attempt of environmental improvement and integration which deals with the river Lambro and the area below the city bypass. With regard to the Lambro, the project deals with the redefinition and development of its natural vegetation on the river banks with the employment of hygrophilous and graminaceous grasses.
