With its propagation beyond the ancient walls in the countryside, the contemporary urban pattern of Piacenza flakes off, is frayed, making feeble the limit between rus and urbs; the continuous and porous old town gives way to the sprawl. In this project, the main idea is that, through moderate and small signs, defined by thematic pavilions (which are the general goal to achieve according to the Summer School), the effects can affect the urban scale, in a much wider field than the real area of intervention. So in this case the pavilion itself is thought as a bridge on the threshold between city and countryside. Moreover, the soil design, starting from the edges of the city, allows to fix the starting point of a succession of paths picking up those parts of the city now forgotten and isolated.
