Historic centers are obsolete. Their buildings hardly fit the uses and the habits of contemporary society while possible transformations are denied by a system of law that does nothing but immobilizes this condition. The only hope to revive this part of the city is to let the market free to reorganize its structures, its uses and regulate the access of peoples who will finally live there. Against this fate, we propose instead to let the historic center of Floridia be reappropriated by its locals by opening its spaces and land to the commons. A series of communal gardens allow those physical and social change needed to reuse this part of the city; introducing spaces openly accessible and self-managed by the neighbors through. A space to institute new social relations based on cooperation and solidarity.
