The former Mira Lanza plant is a valuable industrial archaeology complex, now protected by the cultural heritage code, and part of the industrial district of post-unification Rome at the turn of the 19th century and the first decade of the 20th century.

This industrial fabric, which has been disused over time, has become the heart of the urban centrality defined by the Ostiense Marconi Urban Project, which envisages the recovery and redevelopment of the entire area, relevant to the RomaTre University Settlement, with an increase in the provision of spaces and services of general interest, as well as equipped green spaces.

The expected redevelopment includes the vacant areas surrounding the disused buildings of the former Mira Lanza and Papareschi Park, which will be transformed as a fully functional public green space for the redevelopment of the district, a public space that connects the local environment through green infrastructure. A public park will be established in the Papareschi area. The "public green" space (Papareschi Park), which is also in accordance with the Urban Project Ostiense Marconi, whose destination must be confirmed, is included in the border of the redevelopment area and will be verified in the reconstruction project of the former Mira Lanza industrial complex. The construction of amenities such as kiosks, restrooms and refreshment areas is permitted. As part of the urban incentive offered for the recovery of the former Mira Lanza buildings, these facilities will be the subject of an administrative concession and the related additional SUL. 

The proposals will have to: encourage social inclusion through the provision and characterisation of spaces, equipment and services, following the 15-minute city model as well as generate employment opportunities in the area; and entail the environmental improvement of the area by creating a park, which will have to be reclaimed with "green and blue infrastructure".

Expected Land Use:

The permitted uses are indicated in the urban planning variant sheet (Annex n 2) and may include:

- Personal services (administrative, social, welfare, health, education, cultural, fitness);

- Private management;

- Crafts services and artists' studios;

- Locations of national, foreign and supranational institutions/foundations;

- University buildings and facilities, including guest houses and student residences;

- Cultural facilities; Collective facilities;

- Social housing;

- Training, public education and/or public interest centres.

Type of Property transfer intended:

The redevelopment activities may be carried out, whilst awaiting  the update of the current Plan of Disposals and Revaluations (Piano delle Alienazioni e Valorizzazioni), requested by the Department of Heritage and Housing Policies (Dip. del Patrimonio e Politiche Abitative) with prot. note QC 19820 of 07/04/2022, by recurring to the institution of the concession, or to the instruments of constitution or transfer of other rights (diritti reali) according to art. 58 co. 7 of Law 133 /2008, to be evaluated at the end of the first phase. In this case, the Administration may also evaluate expressions of interest which, in order to ensure the necessary economic-financial balance, propose economic offers that take into account the additional costs (e.g. land reclamation).


Plot Area: Area approximately 24,244 sqm, mainly flat.

Property ownership: Roma Capitale
