The redevelopment projects of the buildings already awarded and the proposals received for the latest tenders were presented, while the Network Projects have been enriched with new thematic networks and implementation tools for the Third Sector. New calls coming for the summer.
Rome, 29 May 2023 – The State Property Office continues its work of recovery and reuse of its real estate assets through the activities related to the Network Projects: complex initiatives, of a national nature, for the regeneration of non-instrumental public assets of cultural, identity and landscape value, for their economic, social and cultural redevelopment. A few days ago, the public tenders for 16 buildings to be entrusted in concession to subjects able to take charge of their redevelopment and good management, saving them from degradation and ensuring their public use, combining the themes of tourism, culture, environment and soft mobility, were closed: 15 proposals have been received which will now be evaluated by the Office’s Tenders Committees. In particular, very interesting feedback came from the Capo Comino Lighthouse in Siniscola (NU), which received 7 offers and Villa Carducci Pandolfini in Florence, with 3 offers.
Tenders also arrived for five other properties among those in the call: the De Amicis barracks in Sulmona (AQ), the “Il Colle” roadman’s house in Terracina (LT), the Military Warehouse in Pizzighettone (CR), the Calafuria Tower in Livorno and the Social Theatre of Amelia (TR).
While the activity of selecting new redevelopment proposals continues, the Office has assigned in concession/rental some assets of great artistic and landscape interest located in history and natural beauty-rich contexts: the former Caldieri barracks of Ortigia in Syracuse, Pozzarello Fort in Monte Argentario (GR), the splendid Villa Chigi Alle Volte in Siena, the Gran Maestrato di S. Lazzaro in Capua (CE) and the Teatro Rossi in Pisa, the only one to have been assigned a free concession as required by the tender notice.
Here are the details of the redevelopment projects that will start in the coming months:
In the light of the success of these awards, of the new proposals received by the State Property Office for the tenders that have just closed and, above all, of the activities started in the already recovered assets, the Network Projects have been enriched with new thematic networks and new implementation tools: alongside the consolidated networks of Lighthouses, Watchtowers and Coastal Buildings and Hikes and Itineraries, starting from today, the Forts and Fortifications, Villages and Inland Areas, Accessible Tourism and Third Sector Entities will join in the network. The latter is an initiative dedicated to the promotion of innovative initiatives for the redevelopment of unused public buildings owned by the State, to be entrusted to Third Sector Entities in order to recover disused assets and encourage the development and promotion of general interest activities on the national territory, aimed at increasing the economic and social value of state buildings.
To facilitate this activity, the Office has decided to experiment with new implementation tools alongside the already consolidated ones of the redevelopment concession/rental and of the concession/rental for use free of charge: this is the facilitated concession pursuant to Art. 71, par. 3 of Legislative Decree no. 117/2017. It is an instrument introduced by the Third Sector Code for the awarding of restricted and not used public buildings, at a subsidized rent, to Third Sector Entities registered in the Single National Register of the Third Sector, in order to ensure their conservation and openness to public use for activities of social interest – cultural, artistic, recreational, editorial promotion and dissemination of culture and the practice of volunteering, of general interest, tourism of social, cultural or religious interest – in response to local needs (the basin territorial reference), in line with the policies and culture of the territory, respecting the history of the property and the reference environmental landscape system.
The Office will publish the first tranche of tenders for 2023 at the beginning of the summer.
