Posted: 28 September 2016

CDP Investimenti Sgr, directed and coordinated by the Cassa Depositi e Prestiti SPA, has launched an international design competition for recovery of the former San Gallo di Firenze military hospital complex, which has kept its historical character.

The area to be recovered is 16,200 sqm and the competition is divided into two phases:

  • The first, by 31 October, requires submission of a resume and a preliminary project proposal.
  • The second will see selection of a shortlist of finalists which will be required to develop an idea for the project.
  • The finalists admitted to the second phase will be asked to develop an urban planning concept abased on the contents of the PDR and the documentation provided. Finalists will be invited to a site visit to the Property, to gather additional information with respect to that provided with the Brief. The site visit will be followed by a meeting with City Government and the Superintendence.
