The urban regeneration masterplan proposes a transformative vision: reimagining the Sesia river from a peripheral element to a central, vibrant landscape infrastructure.

The urban regeneration masterplan proposes a transformative vision: reimagining the Sesia river from a peripheral element to a central, vibrant landscape infrastructure.

With its rich naturalistic and cultural heritage, Vercelli faces urban and infrastructural challenges that have fragmented the city over recent decades. Our urban regeneration master plan proposes a transformative vision: reimagining the Sesia River from a peripheral element to a central, vibrant landscape infrastructure. This shift aims to breathe new life into the city, creating a network of green axes and urban spaces that link the river with the historic city centre, suburbs, and surrounding agricultural areas.

This plan envisions a cohesive city landscape where diverse territorial areas coexist and interact dynamically while preserving their unique identities. Through landscape restoration, residents and visitors will reconnect with the region’s values, enhancing Vercelli’s attractiveness and accessibility. We aim to forge a new image for Vercelli, where urban and natural environments are interwoven, fostering a sustainable and thriving urban ecosystem.
