What is "Temporary Use"?

Temporary Use of public spaces or public heritage is a way to bring back to life the abandoned spaces of cities, enhancing the urban voids by giving them cultural, social, educational destinations and new roles of aggregation and participation. Temporary Uses are able to create a network between public and private institutions, associations, citizens in order to live again abandoned spaces and disused or neglected areas and use them as the trigger action for the creation of new cultural, economical and social values.
