After having investigated a few significant events with a view to documenting the public parks project of recent years (n. 1/1990 and n. 1/ 1992) Arredo & Città comes back to this theme in a conversation with Franco Zagari and in a review of some of his more recent works.
The project’s capacity to interact with the history of a location and, at the same time, establish its characteristics for the future can create, according to Zagari, ‘living spaces’ capable of further development. The aesthetical quality of a restoration project does not derive solely from the figurative abundance of chosen solutions, but also from the ability to interpret an already strongly characterised setting in a complex and original way.
