Data gathered in field research carried out by the Maimeri Foundation, Shifton and the Amici della Nave Association will be presented, showing how the qualitative interviews and field observations identified the needs of the prison, brought to light new requirements then imagined what functions to assign to the redesigned spaces.The competition, open to developers, architects, designers and town planners, was launched to promote a new concept of the prison through the redesign of some of the prison's current spaces, to change how they are perceived and improve how they are used. The call for ideas ran from 9 December 2020 to 18 January 2021. The panel of judges selected six groups, to be announced shortly, to whom the case studies indicated in the call for ideas will be assigned. Following this, the project development phase will commence, with the support of the research team, and inspections and surveys of the prison will be carried out. The projects are expected to be delivered in June 2021.
