The project regarding the redevelopment of the Lungomare di Levante was an opportunity to rethink the complex relationships between the various parts of the city. In fact, the project area covers that part of the city where different types of structures meet: the Umbertino District with its orderly disposition, the “Graziella” representing the ancient urban pattern, the twentieth-century expansion of the Talete parking area, and the contact with the sea. This urban complexity identifies three different spheres, each bearing its own character but all interconnected.
