An interesting urban redevelopment project was commissioned to City Design by the town Montebelluna (TV), involving the enhancement of Piazza D’Annunzio and Via Manzoni, the historic focal points of the town as they were once the venue for the town’s market.
The new architectural style of the square is inspired by the history of this Veneto town: the square has been transformed into a pedestrian area, which has been enhanced by installing a system of lampposts, feather-shaped sail shades and benches in Via Manzoni.
The entire concept of urban furniture has been completely overhauled, employing shapes and structures inspired by themes central to this market town’s history. The street lamps in fact have been designed to resemble ears of wheat, while the concrete seats are shaped like grains of wheat.
