Santa Fiora, Grosseto - 2005 / 2009
The Fedro’s Gardens renovation brought back a place and a farming tradition that had been lost. The choice was made instead to transform it into a public park, to share this place with the people and the administration of Santa Fiora and to play an important part in the newly developed system of public spaces. The field was divided into small lots varying in size between 400 and 700 square meters, each equipped with its own storage shed. A bigger communal shed was built as greenhouse and plant nursery. The irrigation system was rebuilt using old drawings from the town registry and by checking them against current aerial photos in order to retrace the original network of pipes. Once restored the system regained its full functionality and today it brings abundant water to each of the plots in the gardens.
