I developed the design project in the frame of the workshop commissioned by the Municipality of Vinci and held at the School of Doctorate – University of Firenze, Faculty of Architecture. As doctoral students, we were asked to contribute with design project ideas to the development of the Masterplan of the Municipality of Vinci. I focused on tiny villages, ancient parishes, forgotten churches, working farms, archaeological ruins, old and new paths, neglected public spaces which for me constituted the very identity of Vincy. As backdrop, the physical surroundings: the Arno River and the Albano Mountain. Therefore, the project became a patchwork quilt, sewing together the fabric of the landscape to create a new system of paths, public spaces and accesses. The main goal was to connect the tiny villages to the landscape and to highlight the historical importance and improve the self-sustenance of the landscape.
