The restoration of the former nursing boarding school is characterized by interventions aimed at static consolidation and historical enhancement of the building, with the aim of creating a multidisciplinary creative hub in which new activities can live in close synergy with existing ones. The planned functions will be strongly integrated with the rest of the city and with the system of open spaces through new public connections that will make the entire complex a dynamic and permeable place, open to citizens. The refunctionalization involves the creation of a series of spaces aimed at encouraging the relationship between the Municipality and the citizens in the construction processes of urban policies and in the practices of transformation, where institutions, citizens and local actors can build a constant, transparent and participatory dialogue for the Empoli area.
