Masterplan of the "City of the colonies"

MCA, following a participatory process with the public, in collaboration with groups Ecoazioni and Area, has developed a masterplan for an area of 130 hectares, north of Cesenatico. The project consists of  the transformation of a degraded area into a vast green lung. It will result in a public park containing sports facilities and will include demolition of  old disused settlements in favor of new eco-friendly structures. The beach will be widened to become more usable.
