Abstract

It can be reached by walking. From below. Trees hide the sight of the stones. Then, arrived at the top of the hill, the landscape opens up and you understand the magic of this site, chosen by hominids in the Pleistocene, eight hundred thousand years ago. The current configuration, the first stones of the Rocca date back to the 10th century, is due to Giuliano da Maiano and dates back to the end of the fifteenth century. Towards the end of 1700 the property passed from the Grand Duchy of Tuscany to private individuals. The project for the new life of the site includes temporary architectures, innovative technologies, activities for the community, guest houses to accommodate travelers, spaces for entertainment and culture. The theme of sustainable development is declined in various aspects: environmental and energy sustainability, reversibility of the intervention, sensitivity towards “design for all”, tourist itineraries, compatibility with the historical and artistic value of the building.
