The Neighbourhood workshop (Laboratorio quartieri) stemmed from the wish to experiment with a shared planning process that aimed to integrate expert technical and design supervision with the experience and requests of the local community in order to provide the municipal administration with project guidelines to be included in the three-year Plan of public works. The workshop approach was based on the assumption that San Donato could be interpreted as a ‘city of neighbourhoods’, each with its own physical features, history, ways of living, and different problems and resources.
