The project of the "Parco La Pineta" is born from the desire to mend various dimensions: The public green, the History, the Memory. These elements that, in the last 20 years, have lost their functional and symbolic valence. History, architecture, nature and memory find space and place in a place of recreation, culture, contemplation. The past of this place is linked to the family Gargallo, foundress of our town. It was important to give a sign of this, sharing identity through a garden studied in a contemporary key.
A porch is placed at its entrance, as an element that in its lightness filter out the surrounding space, as to distinguish an inside from an outside. The internal path is divided into green areas and areas equipped for children. Olive Gardens alternate with inclined planes to constituite natural seatings. Here the fragment's dimension wants to give a reminder of the broken lives of our workers who have fallen on the job. How to create a gash in which the water, symbol of rebirth, originates from a natural brook that solcas the soil around the park.
Thus art becomes historical and contemporary component: carved on the fallen pine trunks, it comes to life through the sculptures that take on the meaning of memory, linked to the suffering of those who lost their lives while working, to the rebirth of a place and the people whose have lived it and will return to live it. The whole process is ideative and realization has taken into account a theme from which today no longer ignore: respect for the environment. In fact, inside the park an LED lighting system has been installed guaranteeing a considerable energy-saving, as well as for the rest of the equipments for the recirculation and the purification of the water.
