Studio UAP [Silvia Cioli + Luca D’Eusebio + Andrea Mangoni] has mapped through the magic of Google Maps about 50 community-run green areas: little urban gardens, play yards, edible gardens and areas for walking, resting, or simply talking. Citizens and associations acting together to reclaim the abandoned areas in Rome.
More than 100 sites together with the 65 spontaneous gardens registered by the Rome municipality.
Urban farms too and other interesting experiences such as Partecipation Houses, “Punti Verdi Qualità” and green areas maintained by established associations.
The project is a called “ZAPPATA ROMANA”: COMMUNITY-RUN GREEN AREAS and viewable on web based Google Maps.
