Rome, Italy: Greening San Lorenzo neighbourhood

  • Piazza S. Lorenzo Roma, Lazio, 00185 Italy

San Lorenzo is a neighbourhood located in Roma, between the Verano Cemetery, Sapienza University and Termini Station. It's a very "mineral" area with few trees (apart from those belonging to the Cemetery area) and few public spaces. The aim of the walk is to illustrate through a "project- storytelling performance" how the places can be transformed from mineral to green. The Sapienza University students of Urban planning II course (Faculty of Engineering) will expose to the inhabitants, associations, politicians how to do it during the walk. Each stop is where a pocket park, or a residential street, or a walking-cycling path, a green parking area can take place. The students will help people to imagine a new shape of the area through the illustration of their design propositions. The walk will end in Parco dei Galli where all the participants will be involved in the realization of a vegetable garden.
