Fondazione Adriano Olivetti – Reimmaginare Corviale by Stalker
Matteo di Sora
West of Corviale runs a thin blade of urban gardens, a kilometer of cultivated, self-managed land. Thanks to the work and care of a few occupants, this parcel of earth now yields its fruits, allowing its “pioneers” to rediscover a sense of community through individual initiatives. At the same time, this place presents several challenges; some of these gardens are currently in a state of disrepair, fenced off with nets and metal barriers, having turned into small dumping grounds. The interconnected gardens, one linked to another like a continuous line, serve as a physical boundary between Corviale and the natural landscape that surrounds it.
Our project aims to establish a space for connections – an urban park that serves as a place for relaxation and play, a focal point for community gathering and learning. Through cultivation, we seek to foster an intimate and sensitive connection between citizens and rural nature. We propose the development of a public space where the simple act of cultivation can engage the community, making it a key player in the management of green areas.
