Genova - third prize
The Case study Genoa comprehends a number of different areas that have to be transformed into valuable parts of a single system. The former Miralanza area, previously the home to an industrial company, offers the opportunity to house new urban residential, civic, public functions. On the hills at the north west of the centre of Genoa, the residential settlement know as the "Begato Dams" offers a typical example of the application of counterproductive urban policies which tend to generate decadent ghettos and alienate the residents, resulting, today, in a good number of vacant residential units.
