The project area is located to the south of the city of Formia, in that part of the city that we call “limit”, for several reasons. It is an administrative limit, because it is the last part of the coast that belongs to the Formia municipality; it is a perceptive limit among two different landscapes (the protected natural area and the Gianola neighborhood); it is aphysical limit among the city and the sea. The settlement is formed by single summer houses with garden, with low quality. The roject aims to enhance the natural environment, through the creation of a cycle path, a coastal park and re-design of the beach facilities (polycarbonatemodular elements with aluminum frame that will host an info point, events in the life of the park or not, and toilets).
