Intervention proposal promoting an alternative public space design, namelya new dynamic in the area, resolving the existing conflict between traffic flow and the touristic ornament placed in the center of the roundabout. The proposal aimed at promoting pedestrian safety through the removal of the ornament from the center of the roundabout into a newly created visiting area, and to create conditions for the landscape valorization of the area, through a newly street design. A new sculptural element to be placed on the roundabout was proposed, related to the landmark, making the place immediately recognizable, whereas the existing N2 ornament would be relocated to the northeast sidewalk, with its area being significantly increased.
