PIAZZA ILARIA ALPI-LATINA
Located in the south-eastern part of the city of Latina, Piazza Ilaria Alpi is one of the place identified by the UPPER UIA project in latina as a demonstration site for the planting of new plant species to counteract the increase in temperature, linked to the heat island effect. In recent years, the committee, supported by the professional group “Young Architects Pontini”, has undertaken a participatory process that has actively involved both adults and children leading to the drafting of a design proposal for the redevelopment of the area, then donated to the City of Latina.
The design defines the organization of the space into different functional areas: a basketball court, a cavea for outdoor events, an area for dogs, a space for children , an area for outdoor sports, several green areas with lawns and trees …
The community led initiatives the piazza are narrated by some protagonists in one of the UPPER stories realised by Tesserae during the Urban Innovative Action project.
