The day of 23 July, starting at 3.30 p.m., will be dedicated to co-design workshops and storyplaying activities, where the Department will involve citizens in the development of design solutions for the use of the Giardino di via Roma in Albugnano, through experimentation of collective participatory design practices. It will also be possible to explore the territory of Albugnano and its surroundings, immersing oneself in a visit to unusual, hidden or forgotten places, guided by those who have a story to tell.
