The recovery of the metropolitan sector stressed by the former factory Cevolani in Bologna is a crucial opportunity for urban revitalization. Fundamental axis for future changes in the district is the old tramway Bologna-Pieve di Cento affecting two of the existing blocks in project area, located to the west. The track infrastructure provides an opportunity to create a new urban dorsal equipped with green corridors connecting public spaces on which to certify new equipment and new functional episodes. The project develops different fabric and settlement patterns in search of the urban variety (formal, architectural and typological) considered as indispensable to the creation of a proper "city effect". The unusual and heterogeneous soil treatment of private, public and semipublic spaces shall redesign the logic of movement and experience about the fruition of the city, as it contributes to "refound" a new urban quality of living.
