Roman suburbs have many non-places and spaces that are left to themselves, this project aims to reconnect two neighborhoods facilitating a third one located in the middle.

The analysis and the interviews with local citizens have revealed some major failures where the project becomes protagonist with the renewal of Ciamarra Avenue.

Healing a “sick” road

Often spontaneous growth of urban centers in the roman suburbs has led over time to the creation of pathways and connections unsuited to the needs of different areas.

Viale Ciamarra is one of these, the project is defined as a link between the two neighboring areas. the current situation causes the presence of traffic and an insulation between the urban aggregates.
