The project aims to redevelop an abandoned area in the centre of Como by:

  • constructing a new road network to improve the accessibility and connection with the urban surroundings;
  • building a parking lot with more than 1000 parking places spread over two levels and potentially further parking places at street level;
  • creating green areas and gathering places integrated with business activities;
  • building a new centre to bring together municipal services and council offices (local police, social services, archives), a meeting room and other public and private services;
  • repositioning the existing commercial and business activities;
  • converting the building and the area named “Santarella” into a cultural centre with educational, museum and exhibition purposes.

The project is an Integrated Intervention Programme (PII, Programma di Intervento Integrato), a municipal initiative that involves different subjects and public and private financial resources.

Como is the county seat of the homonymous province in Lombardy. The proximity to the Lake Como and to the Alps, the numerous works of art, churches, gardens, museums, theatres, parks, and palaces scattered on its territory have made the town a popular tourist destination, visited all over the year. The most important historical buildings are the Cathedral (Duomo), seat of the diocese, the Basilica di San Abbondio, Villa Olmo, the public gardens with the Tempio Voltiano, the Teatro Sociale, Palazzo del Broletto, the medieval Townhall and the 20th century Casa del Fascio. In 2013 Como was the fourth most visited town in Lombardy after Milan, Bergamo, and Brescia, but in 2018 it has become the third most visited, surpassing Bergamo, with 1,4 million tourists in a year. Como gave birth to many historical figures, among whom the poet Cecilio, mentioned by his friend Catullus, in the 1st Century B.C., the authors Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger, the Pope Innocent XI, the scientist Alessandro Volta, and Cosima Liszt, Richard Wagner’s second wife who was also the director of the Bayreuth Festival.
