entrance to the monumental complex occurs through the main
gate which is reached from a ample parking area planted with
trees. Once beyond the entrance the visitor perceives the
complete extension of the embankment from which the mass of
the Fortress rises.
The entire surface of the embankment will kept as a walkable
lawn, so that the visitor will have a 360° view of the
surrounding landscape and sense being at a higher elevation
than the village and countryside.
This is a fundamental perception in order to give back to
the complex the identification of its boundaries and the
characteristic dimension of fortified architecture, today
fragmented by randomly placed walls and trees.
