The proposed transformation pertains to a section of the former 'G. Perotti' barracks area, a complex dating back to the early 1940s, located on the eastern outskirts of Bologna in close proximity to the ring road and motorway Junction.

The area is located on the outskirts of a portion of the city, planned and built post World War II and is characterised by a robust network of green spaces, slow mobility routes and a strong presence of services for the population. To the south lies a district designated for Affordable and Popular Housing constructed in the 1970s, complemented by Detailed Plans established in response to Bologna's 1985 PRG. 

In the immediate context, several initiatives are underway that will shape the future configuration of the area such as the construction of a complex designed for public functions and the offices of the Revenue Agency, in another section of the former 'Perotti' barracks. The creation of new services and planned networking interventions make the area particularly attractive for green and inclusive urban regeneration, including services, public spaces and housing.

Expected Land Use:

The objective of the transformation is to initiate a process of urban regeneration with low environmental impact and significant social value, to be implemented through an urban restructuring intervention. The intervention, in addition to the existing total volume (approximately 80,880 cubic metres, a figure to be confirmed by the successful bidder in relation to the regulations and legislation in force at the time of issuing the building permit), will be able to benefit from a volume increase of 10%. Of the volume realised, at least 30% must be allocated to university housing, the subsequent management of which shall be the responsibility of the successful bidder, who shall apply the prices of the 'capped fee'; the intervention will generate areas for public facilities (including equipped public spaces and public car parks) of no less than 100 sqm/100 sqm of usable area.

Type of Property transfer intended:

Valorisation through sale of the complex.
