The project fits into the context through understanding the current internal arrangement and reinterpreting the historical lines, visual, formal and ecological connections stratified in space and time. The intervention aims to reactivate and redevelop the entire area of the ” Rocca del Leone” and its walls, to create a visual, ecological and attractive synergy, thus increasing its enjoyment and economic potential. The interior space is a place of the heterogeneous, where elements of different eras and civilizations coexist, so the interpretive reworking of heritage emergencies, constraints and historicized elements results in compatible, recognizable and reversible design choices. The current concrete steps clash with the concept of soil permeability and integration with the context, so it will be planned to be removed and a new step constructed, while the stage will be retained. The ancient function of hortus conclusus is resumed in the main lines of the paths and in the different vocation of the spaces, creating two environments: the tree-lined foyer and the theater garden, put in contact by a raised area that is both an element of visual separation and access and connection to the arena.
