The intervention area is located on viale Guidi (Bellaria Igea Marina centre), in front of the municipal library. The project aims at redeveloping the entire area by creating a small square to bridge the space in front of the library with the axis of the road, giving origin to a flexible place for various events. The tensile structure, made up of two overlapping sails, draws the profile of lugsails, while the floor coverings remind of the wooden boards and slats of the local navy boats.
