The neighborhood of Corso Lazio, in the city of Frosinone, Italy, can finally enjoy its first public space,that it has been expecting for 25 years now. The sensational garden represents the starting point of a big masterplan to renew and integrate the public spaces and the services to the housing neighborhood.
