“Passo Carrabile” is a proposal to reverse the relationship between the private space of the cars and the public pedestrian space.
By a simple inversion in the use of materials, - asphalt and the roman “sanpietrini” - and the design of a spatial continuity between the pedestrian surfaces, and an attentive articulation of the thresholds between these different spaces, we propose a new typology of public space that can be used as a model for other situations.
