The goal is to build two aggregation poles able to revitalise the city of Buccinasco through the location of new architectural works with a strong urban connotation. These two zones, at present political and economic poles, need a new general configuration in order to make them recognizable in the undifferentiated suburbs’ landscape. In order to do this, proposals aimed to improve the present urban-planning situation through morphologic suggestions according to regional Rule 12/2005 (a rule that aims at “the overcoming of city zooning and at a territory transformation through urban plans and projects”) are welcomed.

Following agreements between Administration and area owners or acquisition of such areas, the crier reserves the possibility to issue a further ban for definitive and executive planning stages. Areas mentioned in such competition are property of Municipality or private owners, mentioned in PGT as “urban transformation”.
