The project involves the redevelopment of Piazza Risorgimento in Pordenone (Italy), place ever designed: the result of subsequent interventions speculative. The area is surrounded on four sides by roads and presence of two rows of trees and a central area with three large trees placed in random order. The plan creates two large shady gardens that include existing rows of trees and a central area paved. The central area is characterized by a clear stone paving in the center a large circular pool in blocks of dark granite that forms a fountain, a focal point of the square. In the two large green areas has been planted a second row of trees and flowers, these natural areas are crossed by diagonal paths that connect to the central area with a more abstract design. The square is bordered by long benches in stone, and a stone ring encompass the old magnolia, the flooring is interrupted near the two existing trees as if it had been finished. The whole square is made with only two materials: pale limestone blocks 2mx1m, 12cm thickness, dry-laid and dark granite blocks to form the circular ring of the fountain and dark granite cubes for all other paths.
