Functional recovery and urban requalification of the former Fruits and Vegetables Market in Southern Verona.
The project concerns the requalification of an abandoned industrial area which could become a new part of the city, with a big area to be used as a public park, a two-storeys underground parking, new office buildings, a new connection with the Fair and a covered square in the old parabolic structures, which would become a new "forum". This place, once dedicated to a market, would keep on performing the function of aggregation and meeting it had in the past.
