Le Murate - Firenze

The regeneration of the ancient prison complex of Le Murate in the historical centre of Florence is a successful experience of integrated planning, which has restored an area that has historically been cut off from the urban and social fabric of the Santa Croce neighbourhood. The project is based on the city council’s consistent support for a redevelopment which has brought social housing back into the city centre, while also developing a multi-sectoral range of interventions including new public spaces and pedestrian access routes, an innovative enterprise incubator, an art centre and studios, as well as commercial space.
