The village of Giorgino
Proximity to industrial plants and the container terminal, the presence of an environmental area of significant importance, the historic church of S.Efisio: all these elements mark the Giorgino context, a fishermen’s settlement which at the present time, due to the ‘cutting’ of its link to the shore to make way for the container terminal, has been isolated from – and almost forgotten by – Cagliari with the exception of two times a year – the fishermen’s feast day and the S. Efisio procession.

An area surrounded by the sea and the wetlands and marsh system, marked by the directrix of the canal and container port, which on the one hand possesses specific environmental characteristics and on the other great potential in a framework for future economic and logistical development plans and programs.
Possible themes to be addressed include the rehabilitation of the village, paying special attention to public spaces and the possibility of setting up temporary structures for the traditional ‘fish feast’ – organized by the fishermen themselves every year in the second week in September – and enhancement of its strong link with the sea, by creating structures for future use of the beach (taking account of frequent flooding due to the strong south-east sirocco wind), with the wetlands of Santa Gilla and the city, onto which open panoramic views of notable points in the urban landscape.

Another theme worth looking into, in view of plans for the re-positioning of road 195 and the creation of nautical services (as foreseen in the above mentioned Reconfiguration Plan) addresses a new access route, the provision of tourist accommodations and improvement of residential facilities in support of the activities of the container terminal and product processing industries which over time will settle in the area, considering the possible relocation of heavier industrial activities from the adjoining area.

Proposals should refer to the goals, guidelines and criteria of the RLP. The present suggestions provided are in no way binding to competitors who are free to supplement and integrate them with other considerations deriving from the study of the village and its relations with the surrounding context.
