The workshop is an initiative of 9sqm*, a collective of families living in the neighborhood. They want to express their resistance but they also  claim their participation as citizens in the transformation of their city. Especially, as this project (a) aims at the transformation of public space and (b) wants to offer alternative solutions to those elaborated by the public administration.

*9sqm = 9 square meters are the minimum endowment of (equipped) green area per inhabitant according to the Ministerial Decree 1444/1968. According to the urban legislation of Alto Adige this value is only indicative.
