The place and the project. The Fornace Morandi along the Brenta River: project proposals for a new park in Noventa Padovana, Italy
Keywords:Regeneration, Public Space, Environmental Values, Industrial Archaeology, Brenta River
Noventa Padovana is a town in the province of Padua, located a short distance from Venice. This contribution considers the wide area, today in degraded conditions, including the ruins of a kiln for the production of tiles and bricks which was built at the end of the 19th century by the Morandi family. The furnace was definitively closed in the 1960s and the area remained abandoned for several years. In 2006, the property was acquired by the Municipality of Noventa Padovana and this made it possible some essential maintenance work, providing the basis for a project that will enable the population to fully enjoy this large green area. This subject has been recently investigated by our students at the ‘Architectural and Urban Composition 2' course taught on the master’s degree in Architectural Engineering at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering of the University of Padua.
