Site Plan Diagram

The Project was led by the communal organization; with cultural and sport associations alongside the local and national governments. The community operates as geopolitical cells called community councils: this structure of territorial power management allows them to map, discuss, evaluate, diagnose and prioritize their problems, needs and demands with a high level of participation, thanks to its flexible and horizontal itinerary. This cells are constitutionally validated, establishing new ways of governability and assemble a legal scaffolding able to canalize the public resources through collective discussion and voting.
