Walking around the park, have you ever wondered why some of the parks and their buildings get to be so neglected? Why so beautiful places do not reveal their full potential? What is their true story behind the “curtain”?
Well, we have! And not only that, we thought about how to make them as much accessible to all people who want to learn something about them and in them!
We invite you to be one of those people and become a part of our HICAPS project! So come on and check us out!
What we do?
HICAPS project is aiming at developing 8 different concepts how to revitalize 8 different castle parks. By building different interactive contents and by developing tools we will enrich park spaces and turn them into a place for spending time in, socializing in nature, interaction, a places for educational workshops, game, ect. Simply putted, the idea is to renovate the space for renovation of community!
Also, our goal is to develop set guidelines that will show how we achieved our mission and in a long term help someone else who wants to follow our example and do something similar in their own community.
Beautiful places around the world
Bologna's very own green stronghold!
A Quick did you know...
... the park extends over the northern slopes of the hills of Ronzano, which, at the summit, has a convent founded by members of the Order of the Blessed Joyous Virgin Mary, known as the frati gaudenti (joyous friars), whose founders—Loderingo degli Andalò and Catalano dei Malavolti—were mentioned in the XXIII canto of Dante Alighieri’s Inferno as being among the hypocrites.
In our HICAPS catalogue, we have compiled all the information relevant for our project.
