I am the physical infrastructure on which the concept of Multifunctional Agricultural Park of the Paduli is based.
The recovery of my dense road network began with the objective of putting in connection, deteriorating rural areas situated in the park with small villages that form the surrounding crown, recovering the relations between the life of the inhabitants, the town and rural areas intertwined with safeguarding and preserving historical cultural attractions, with the defence of the economic role of agriculture that has marked the history of economical development in this area.
The main idea is to integrate into a single level of connection, the spontaneous customs of the community with the services, productive activities tied to agriculture, the architectures, the history, the popular culture and the landscapes thus making it possible to access tangible as well as non tangible goods related to the culture and experiences of local communities.
In this way, the user of the park is proposed a new way of knowledge of the territory, that covers about 48km, along narrow roads that cross different types of landscapes, from agricultural ones to natural ones into urban towns, connecting to a system of cycle routes and allowing an access that is slow, effortless but maze-like and suggestive, guided by a system of vertical(tree signs) and horizontal(infocircle) signs.
In the structure of the “delle ex case minime” of San Cassiano, in Della Vittoria Street no.151, is where the headquarters of the Mobility Workshop of Paduli is, in a building constructed for families in need back in the ‘30s (the first example of social housing) renovated and the ground floor destined as a front-office to which a second one was added and used as a waiting room.
