San Faustino Station is located between the old town and the modern city. The  complexity of the area is due to fact that it works both as a busy road junction and as a gateway to downtown.
The design changes the “status quo” of the open space transforming  it into an ancient way of living where pedestrians are more important than any other forms of transport. The city takes the dimension  of the "human scale".
The project is completed by  a visual art installation that gives a different kind of signals thanks to a "non-verbal" communication.
