From Piazza della chiesa nuova to Gianicolo

The handling of the thickness is chosen as the urban design method of intervention to resolves the discontinuity, the fragmentation and the continuous transformation of the city. This intervention is aimed to restore the image of the road axis in both dimensional and socially level. Opening walkways in the banks’ thickness of the Tevere makes them permeable and allows the crossing of it, promoting the river as a participating element in the urban dynamics, no longer perceived as a barrier. Working on the thickness attempts the re-definition of the relationship between empty and full, public and private spaces, natural and artificial ones, and determines the habitability, the use and the permeability of the city.
