The nature around us: the Mediterranean, my culture, too, the river, the mountains … data in the base. The interaction of flows: planes, trains, trams, buses… expression of interchange, of mobility and of the centrality of the place.

With all of this, plus the spaces that protect human activities, constructing a piece of contemporary city, a new centre of the city of the future.
