Call for submission - #opentaranto

The International Ideas Competition is intended as a way to create a future vision for Taranto Old Town and a means to kick-start the engine of regeneration through an Action Plan.

Proposals should help reinforce the importance of the Old Town for public functions on an urban and wider territorial scale and underline its role as a cultural attractor for a large area, helping to position Taranto within the regional and national cultural tourist system.
