Civitacampomarano is a small center where history, culture and unspoiled nature represent an immense value. It sits 520 meters above sea level along an imposing tufa speron in the center of the Great Walloon. Of uncertain origin, the first claim in the form of Campomarano dates back to 999 A.C. Civitacampomarano is an Authentic Village, engaged in a quality path that stands out as a place rich in tradition and culture, but at the same time opens the gaze towards a the wider horizon is the search for innovation and, above all, towards sustainable development. The real challenge is therefore to reconcile the preservation of identity with growth and socio-economic change. The emblematic testimony of Civitese history is the Angioino Castle, a valuable monument of great historical value, consisting of majestic cylindrical towers, whose square in front represents the center of the village where the main streets converge, Via Rome and Via Vittorio Emanuele. 

The design idea 

The project aims to enhance the link between Civitacampomarano and art, enhancing the artistic language of street art, in the path undertaken since 2014 with the "Cvtà street art" whose goal of making art alive and coloring with it the walls and spaces shared, it marries with the idea behind the work done, aimed at achieving a winning strategy, able to counter the abandonment and degradation of the village. The aim of the project is the realization of UNICUM eliminating the obvious fragmentation between the area of Castello Angioino with Via Vittorio Emanuele and Via Roma, in order to achieve the following objectives:

  • improve the environmental quality of areas and routes, characterizing them with natural and artistic elements, in order to give a strong identity, both during daylight hours and in the evening hours;
  • create an innovative path, in which the light sculptures, in addition to characterizing the architecture of the paths, will ensure environmental sustainability, since integrated by photovoltaic cells;
  • attract tourists and inhabitants of the surrounding areas, to promote the social, cultural, environmental and economic development of the small reality.
  • reduce to the point of almost eliminating the maintenance of the greenery and furnishings.

This harmonious reordering will give the citizen a renewed living space, usable safely by all age groups and equipped with a functional system of greenery and furnishings, with the enhancement of lighting design characteristic element on the plane architectural and cultural heritage. The realization of the UNICUM: Walking through the areas subject of competition, there is a clear fragmentation of the pavement: the square in front of the Angioino Castle is paved with limestone basolato, laid to run, while the No.2 arteries that flow into it are covered respectively, with limestone basolato (Via Vittorio Emanuele) with the re-proposition of the drawing of the square, while Via Roma, starting from the square in front of the Castle is paved on the first stretch with basolato of limestone, then with cubes of porfido and finally with tarmac. This fragmentation confers a character of disorder and marginality in Via Roma, despite the fact that on the same street they have properties with characteristic facades, consisting of full bricks, stone and tuff. The ININSERIMENTO OF GREEN, or rather a stylized and artistic technical version of plantings, decorating the facades of the houses off the front street Via Vittorio Emanuele and Via Roma, up to the Piazza del Castello, combining art, light and security.'' The streets do not allow the insertion of large plantings. That is why the choice of the 'GREEN QUADRI', which, together with the metallic floral elements, will ensure the decoration of the facades. The prospects of the Angioino Castle will be characterized by: 

  • rGB LED lighting with a timed color change (white, amber, celestial, blue, magenta, green, red);
  • projected on the facades with projectors.

The property statements will be marked:

  • from floral representations made with aluminum panels micro-drilled to ensure lighting in the evening hours, which will replace "the usual" illuminating bodies on the wall. The light emanating from the "light bands" will be RGB LED (with color change). The LED was chosen for both the guaranteed energy savings and the maintenance factor of 0.8 (the maintenance factor is the light lamp flow factor, the lamp fade factor and the maintenance factor for device);
  • from "green squares" (small green walls) consisting of a dried and stabilized natural lichen from Scandinavia that does not require maintenance, nor water.

It is a flexible carpet of colored licher for stabilized vertical gardens that does not require maintenance. "Renovating the Castle Square means first of all enthusing the residents and strengthening their sense of belonging and identity to the redeveloped place." Therefore, we thought to tell the story of Civitacampomarano along Via Roma and Via V. Emanuele, up to the Piazza del Castello, also involving Via Marconi and part Via Vincenzo Cuoco (up to the house of the well-known Vincenzo Cuoco). The facades of the lower floors, where possible, will be enhanced with decorative elements with corten steel, with a rusty-antique effect, on which the story of Cvtà will be told. The dDs behind them will ensure readability even in the evening hours. The Corten, its lived appearance and the intrinsic characteristics of indeformability and durability is certainly the most responsive material to the architecture of the place.

THE SOSTENIBILITY 

We have provided floral sculptures with adjoining photovoltaic cells to ensure the economic and environmental sustainability of furniture, lighting, video surveillance and anything else necessary can characterize and enhance Civitacampomarano. Each floral sculpture will house a total of 6 photovoltaic modules. It is therefore planned to install 24 high-efficiency single-crystalphotovoltaic photovoltaic modules (No.4 sculptures – 250 Wp) that will achieve a total installed power of 6 kWp. The system is grid-connected and the type of connection is single-phase in low voltage. Production: the annual energy produced will be 8,130 kWh. (The following table shows the monthly energy produced.) Energy and economic sustainability: the energy produced by the proposed photovoltaic system will meet the annual energy absorption. The payback of the plant is estimated to be about 9 years old. Environmental sustainability:  

The proposed photovoltaic system will reduce emissions into the atmosphere of pollutant-affected substances and those that contribute to the greenhouse effect, as shown in the following table.
