Periferica is an organization that promotes urban regeneration through social, cultural and artistic processes to enhance the link between communities and territories. We help public and private subjects towards the development of formats capable of rehabilitating abandoned or underused areas, accompanying them from the analysis phase to the drafting of specific programs capable of including communities within a process that generates urban, social and cultural impact.

A multidisciplinary group under 30, made up of architects, designers and creatives gathered around Casa Periferica, a cultural park born from the regeneration of a former kindergarten and an ancient tuff quarry, today a creative center and community hub. Periferica organizes every year the international festival of urban regeneration which, since 2013, brings together associations, universities and companies to intervene on degraded areas through participatory processes.
