The project distinguishes itself for having faced the problems and resolved them with convintion, to experiment on row houses, as in the historical centres. A theme, that also has been proposed in the Biennale of Venezia of 1980, entitled "the presence of the past". It remains one of the critical terms to analyse an architecture that realistically wants to face the theme of the urban tissue and the one of the relationship between architecture and city.

Using the inclination of the plot, group Rossi has contrasted the oscillation in height, that has the tendency to divide the row houses in vertical sections, by a horizontal glassed band, in which the entries and the shops are situated. The horizontal strip is concluded with an open terrace towards the park. This project is between others that have shown great sensibility towards the particular landscape situation of the "Rinascimento" neighbourhood" and of its integration with the park.
