Architectural design competition for the new public spaces in the former Enel factories. Two different squares are prefigured: one enclosed by the existing buildings has been designed as a green and silent square surrounded by a climbing plant forest and a line of trees; one, exposed to the city noise, is surrounded by a translucent coloured filter and is characterized by soft stony slopes.
