Santa Teresa. Un progetto di rigenerazione urbana per Firenze.Santa Teresa.

AA.VV., DIDA Press, Firenze, 2017

This texts concerns the transformation and restoration of a section of the ex-prison of Santa Teresa in the Historic Centre of Florence to be used for the educational and administrative activities of the School of Architecture of the University of Florence. It documents the entire re-conversion project which, in the concept and method of urban re-qualification and of the design of the city as a constant ‘re-treatment of existing matter’, was founded above all on the valorisation of the historical stratification of the element that compose it, on the desire to imprint a new and more adequate innovative meaning to the new function and, finally, on the recognition of the value as a whole of the entire complex, within the wider strategic aim of the renovation and rehabilitation of the existing built heritage.
