Parco Del Portello
The Portello project started in year 2000 and occupies 240,000 sqm. The area once housed the Alfa Romeo and Lancia factories. This site represents the new north gate of the city, which leads to the motorway system, and interacts with the ‘great diagonal’ in the Gino Valle general masterplan. It will be the threshold and connection between the Trade Fair and the new Piazza Mercato (Market Square). The park under construction is about 70,000 sqm and can be considered a focal point marking the access to the city.
Charles Jencks together with Andreas Kipar outlined the morphological modelling of the hill, which creates a system of diagonal continuity with Monte Stella, the famous and historic hill created by Piero Bottoni after World War II.
