Creative self-making of the park furniture
“WE CAN’T WAIT ANYMORE, LET’S MAKE THE PARK!”
Rome, 10 years after the expropriation of the exSnia lake area and its destination to public park, after 10 years of institutions absence, it is now time to self-build our park! In order to avoid the looming danger of the public area retrocession to the previous owner, the works for the park realization must be started before the date of August 14, 2014.
The exSnia lake, the first natural lake of Rome, the only with spring water, was born where there was the factory Viscosa, in the midst of the buildings of Via Prenestina and Via di Portonaccio, where the builders, twenty years ago, stacked the deck changing the zoned area from not building to building area and tried to construct a huge shopping centre. The struggle of the inhabitants of the districts around the area has managed over the years to block the overbuilding and speculative projects in the area. But now time is short, and we need to realize the park right now!
Let’s make the park and free the lake!
The struggle now needs good ideas and good arms to create!
Call to action to all designers, architects, engineers, eco-lovers, artists with green thumb, artisans of reuse, creative and free minds
We are seeking ideas, proposals and plans for the redevelopment of the green area and the park realization.
