The architects decided to rehabilitate an inoperative railway through environmentally aware means, thereby transforming the area into a promenade that adheres to its area’s environmental constraints. This project would focus on the safety of the tunnel works on the reef slope, including hydraulics.
The project encompasses the entire stretch of the retired railroad and its fixtures between Albissola and Celle Ligure (SV), transforming it into an environmentally accentuated pedestrian promenade. The project focalises the nature paths, view points, a new overhang walkway made by corten steel and wood, The restoration of the railway tunnel will function as a “container” for visionary art exhibitions and artistic installations.
