Scope and Content

This project series documents the Piazza San Nazaro, a public square in Milan, Italy. This project was realized. Riva worked on this project from 1989-1993 in collaboration with Giacomo Borella, Paolo Froncillo, Giovanni Drugman, and Franscesca Riva. Umberto Riva also designed the outdoor furnishings of the piazza, including the street lights and the base of a statue. The project was commissioned by the Metropolitana Milanese and was shown in the exhibition "Umberto Riva, sistemazioni urbane" in 1993, at the Pinacoteca civica Franscesco Podesti in Ancona.

The project series contains studies and design development drawings, including a site plan, elevations, sections, plans, and details for the street lamps, as well as a small description for the project.
