How Can the Site Contribute to the Productive City? 
Verbania is a North-East city of Piedmont overlooking Maggiore’s Lake. It is the capital of the spread Province of Verbano-Cusio Ossola. The city has seen a gradual divestment of the industrial production sector. Today the traces of decline and abandonment of productive sites, that were once vital, are still visible within the urban fabric. The de-industrialization processes were only partially offset by the growth of the services and tourism-hospitality sectors. The re-functionalization and re-use of the former Acetati industrial area and its surroundings will contribute, also from an architectural side, to creating a new urban fabric characterized by a functional mix linked to tertiary, cultural, leisure and sport activities, that can connect the different urban areas.
