The project has returned a new life to an untended garden located in one of the largest squares of the historical district of Rome. The area shows a palimpsest of historical layers: fountains and aqueducts from Imperial City, the Renaissance urban plan by Pope Sixtus V, Baroque villas and gardens. A regular urban development after 1870 including some modern technical plants of the Rome Subway. The new design tends to celebrate and ideally connect all the historical fragments. A set of streams and new fountains keep memory of the lost aqueducts. The technical plants in the central area have been masked by some forms recalling elements of the Renaissance Italian Garden, such as a 'Green Theatre', the 'Stone Tree', a ramp and a 'Belvedere'. They stand on a paved semicircular place like metaphysical pieces of scenery, on a stage which wants to be inhabited by people.
