Re-use Italy, un concorso per la riqualificazione della Piscina Mirabilis di Pozzuoli

21 Febbraio 2020 Off Di Direzione Rivista Siti Unesco

The Italian landscape is littered with forgotten historical buildings.
The movement Re-use Italy was born with the long term goal of focusing the public attention on this issue, promoting cultural activities that can show how it is still possible to bring back life inside those ruins.
We believe that the refurbishment of the abandoned historical environment is represents a resource, both civic and economical, for Italy.

 

To join the movement is it possibile to take part to several  competition:

 

  •  Mirabilis is a Roman reservoir built by Emperor Augustus in the 1st century AD, in order to feed with drinking water the headquarter of his western Mediterranean war fleet. It was dug out a tuff hill, and it is based on a regular grid of pillars and arcs, with vaulted ceilings.

Participants of this competitions are asked to reuse this space as a Contemporary Art Museum.

Is it possible to bring life back inside one of the most important reservoirs of the ancient world?
The answer to this question is in the hands of the designers who will participate to this competition.
