Ranking of LANUVIO projects:

The former station ARES 118 (Regional Agency for Health Emergency) is located within the city center of Lanuvio (Rome), in an area where there are archaeological finds from the Roman era (remains of the sanctuary Giunone Sospita). In particular, excavations affect the area immediately on the north side, with the presence of remains of the ancient shrine. Here's detailed informations about archaeological sites and Comune di Lanuvio 

On the west side, there is a large green area, Villa Sforza Cesarini, with a large park, Roman remains, included a restored arched structure, different services (municipal library, chill out room for listening to music, Hall of Columns for events). The area is located about 800 meters from the main square of the City of Lanuvio and the connections with public transport.

In the past, the area and the building have had different destinations: first, they were used as a day center for disabled adults, and then they became the location for the ARES 118.
In a project presented a few years ago, which was not financed, it was assumed that it would be used as an urban garden. Alternatively, the idea was launched to realize a place of welcome for youth tourism, with the possibility of offering training for the use of 3D printers and photography courses with drones. The municipal council has also decided to set the rooms on the ground floor of the former school "M. Colonna" as offices of the Local Police force.
Today the space is completely unused.
As far as the architectural-urbanistic description is concerned, the building certainly needs internal and external maintenance, the roof and all the installations have to be rebuilt. It should be noted that there is also, obviously to be renovated, a roof structure that has been used to shelter the vehicles, in particular the ambulances of the 118 service.
As far as the citizens' thoughts are concerned, we do not have any reliable data on the matter, in the sense that the future of the area has not been the subject of public debate; however, requests have been received from private individuals to use it for the creation of small gardens (so-called active gardens).
It should be noted that the entire area has a masonry fence, closed with an iron gate.
