The environmental recovery of a large area once served by two stone quarries offers the inspiration for innovative urban and architectural solutions. The creation of a new centrality combines with the design of a nature that is reshaped by the presence of the same resources: lake water, woods and green areas of the park. The industrial archeology of the old mills offers ideas for tourism-receptive valorisation.
