It will be a learning centre in

which people of different ages
will meet up to participate in
various events. Furthermore,
the library will need a space
reserved to children and one for
adults, most likely a bar or an
auditorium, where they could
entertain themselves watching a
recital or a conference. The library
will also be provided of a new
space where guests can consult
digital resources that could
replace classical printed books.

2017, Urban Grafting | Architectural design IV
Professors: Cino Zucchi
Assistants: Stefano Tropea, Matilde Cassani, Paola Sturla, Sebastiano Beni
Collaborator: Marco Rizzo, Andrea Spadaro

The aim of this urban project is to research “on the held” the relationships between
the physical metamorphosis of an existing urban landscape and the shift in its
environmental qualities and social relevance.
The site for the design is the Porta
Genova railway station. The area is presently unresolved for a specific reason: the
rail yard that cut the urban pattern is now under decommissioning. The design
program will include a student hostel, services and a multi-purpose space for events
and expositions, plus the creation of a meaningful public open space in the form of
a new square. What we call urban design could be seen as an act of “grafting” a new
organism onto an existing one, introducing a new physiology in an existing pattern.

Award: Finalist project + Public Exhibition
Organizer | Promoter: Mappe, Demanio Marittimo KM278, MAXXI Museum of Contemporary Arts XXI Century,
Collaborator: Giovanni Cestari, Lorenzo Visentini, Eleonora Valle

Demanio Marittimo sprang from the desire to overlap for one night the
voices of Marche’s creative and design culture with the most interesting
and current themes of architecture and art. The location is a beach. It is
a place that represents the contemporary conception of public space
more than any other: temporary, flexible and inclusive, changing from
day to night, generic and specific at the same time. A crucial element
is the multidisciplinary approach of languages and cultures, inclined to
foster dialogue across borders and disciplines and also to offer a space
for emerging generations and innovative outlooks.

This project is located on the East side

of Milan, at the intersection between
Via Golgi and Via Bassini. Currently
the spot hosts a tens structure that
includes a gym and a small dressing
room, used by students of a nearby
high school. The lotto is bordered
on the east side by a two meters
high wall and on the southern one
by the locker room of the gym. The
west side overlooking Via Golgi, and
the north side towards Via Bassini,
are delimited by a row of trees. The
area in which the gym is situated is
served by public transportation such
as the metro line 2 (stops Piola and
Lambrate), the tramlines 23-33 and
the bus 93, as well as the nearby
train station of Lambrate. This part of
the city is affected by the presence
