The association Parco dei Quartieri Spagnoli APS promotes the international call for proposals The backyard // SoS Trinità delle Monache opened to university students of all levels and aimed at the conception of an equipped public space in the upper garden of the SS. Trinità delle Monache complex - former convent, then Military Hospital and presently Parco dei Quartieri Spagnoli - in Naples.
The call for proposals, issued with the scientific collaboration of the Department of Architecture (DiARC) of the University of Naples “Federico II”, with the support of the Municipality of Naples and with the cooperation of the association Archetipi, is part of the activities planned by “Community Hub – Parco dei Quartieri Spagnoli”: a project allowed and financed as a result of the Notice for the selection of social innovation projects in “target areas” - section reserved for informal groups of citizens - as part of the project of the City of Naples “IQ - I Quartieri dell’Innovazione”, programme of the Department for Social and Labour Policies of the City of Naples funded by PON Metro 2014-2020 Naples 2014-20, Axis 3 Action 3. 3.1 Project NA3.3.1b “ Spazi di Innovazione Sociale - Percorsi di inclusione attiva”.
The aim of the competition - written and promoted by DiARC, on the initiative of the Community of the Quartieri Spagnoli Park - is to acquire ideas for the transformation of the so-called “upper garden” of the Quartieri Spagnoli Park into a dynamic public space. The selected proposals will form the basis for a real-life project. Following an intermediate co-design stage, the project will be self-built during the Summer School taking place from 29 July to 7 August in the evocative context of the seventeenth-century complex of SS. Trinità delle Monache. The aim of the competition and of the Summer School is to “shape” the Community Hub of the Quartieri Spagnoli Park with a project that represents an important segment of the broader and more articulated reactivation process that the Community of the Quartieri Spagnoli Park with the City of Naples and DiARC has been carrying out since 2016, starting from the project carried out under the URBACT III Territorial Cooperation Program, coordinated by the municipality of Naples.
In this regard, the large terrace of the former convent with its open cloister on the slopes of the San Martino hill should become an inclusive and accessible public space for the dense city which surrounds it.
In order to make the proposal coherent with the overall project, it should be considered that the budget foreseen for the purchase of materials to be used in the self-build phase during the Summer School is 10,000 euros (the budget might be increased depending on sponsors) and the construction phase will last 7/10 days.
