La Piazza Analoga

2012, Latina, Italy - competition

Founding act

Renovation of Latina main square. Latina was founded in the '30 years of XX century on the place of a flat and marshy countryside after huge drainage works. It is a totally new city, emblem of Fascist urbanism conception. Its huge and desert main square stands on the center of this concentric pattern. The so called "Square of the People", place for the regime representations and gatherings, is today a leftover of this era, useless and with no proportion.

Our intervention is a new founding act, seeking for old territory memories beneath the rigid concrete and flat clearing, recovering a new order to the theatrical surrounding and creating a real place for democracy and meeting.
