On Saturday 19 November 2016, in the Padiglione Italia dell’Arsenale at the Biennale di Venezia, the Director General for Contemporary Art and Architecture and Urban Peripheries of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism, Ms Federica Galloni, and the President of the National Council of Architects, Planners, Landscape Architects and Conservators, Mr Giuseppe Cappochin, announced the winners of the ideas competition for the renewal of urban peripheral areas.

Announced on 12 September 2016, the competition is the result of the agreement signed between the DGAAP and the National Council. It was created to promote opportunities for young architects to present ideas for peripheral areas characterised by situations of economic and social marginality, decaying structures and a lack of services.

The 10 peripheral areas identified for the competition are:

AREA 01: Aprilia (Latina): Area in the Toscanini district

AREA 02: Corato (Bari): The “Case minime” area in the Belvedere district

AREA 03 Empoli, not part of the competition. SUBSTITUTED BY Piazza Figurella, Villabate (Palermo).
After receiving word from the proposing administration, it was communicated only on 23 September that one of the principal requirements for participation in the process to select the 10 areas was lacking.
For this reason, the DGAAP and the CNAPPC were forced, for reasons beyond their control, to communicate that area 03, the former “casa Cioni” in the village of Avane, Empoli (Florence), would no longer be included in the present competition.

Those participants who had selected this area were provided with the choice, should they be interested, to select one of the other areas or the area of Piazza Figurella in Villabate (PA).
Documentation relative to the area of Piazza Figurella in Villabate (PA) is available at:

AREA 04: Marsala (Trapani): Area in the Park of Salinella

AREA 05: Palermo: Area “Cittadella dello sport” in the S. Filippo Neri district (ZEN)

AREA 06: Reggio Calabria: Area in the Trabocchetto and Sant’Anna districts

AREA 07: Ruvo di Puglia (Bari): Area ex Convento in the Cappuccini district

AREA 08: San Bonifacio (Verona): Area in the Praissola district

AREA 09: Santu Lussurgiu (Oristano): Area ex Collegio Carta-Meloni
