Like in the design of Piazza Ducale in Vigevano, a row of arcaded buildings draw a large public space in the heart of the city. The project focuses on creating a wide-variety of functions: offices, shops, a library, a conference hall and an “Umbráculo”, a foyer that heralds the entrance of the Sports Hall.

The project deeply divided the citizens of Cinisello Balsamo, because of the planned demolition of an old school. It was not built.
