The project is based on four priorities, implemented by the University system, aimed to rebuild the city and overcome the duality between the old town and the post utilitarian city. The first assumes that the barrack areas, given its strategic location on the edge of the city center, will be turned to an university campus that will serve as “urban bridge”, to reconnect the old and modern city. The second assumes that the public and semi-public functions of the University will strength the organizational and morphological structure of this part of town, abolishing eventually the character of the fence. The third assumes that the process of transformation of the barracks will encourage the awareness of the environmental, archaeological, historical and artistic importance of this area of Novara. The fourth assumes to reinforce the “University personality” as a more specialized center for high education, research, experimental and operational laboratories, and interconnecting the University in the entire system of Eastern Piedmont and the city.
