Urban regeneration has been a long time coming in the residential northern neighbourhood. The project got underway in March 2018 by demolishing the existing structures to make way for the modern reworking, which features an undulating wooden-trussed roof.

The stalls will return to the new space no sooner than December 7, while the three permanent fixtures (a poultry butcher, lampredotto seller and a grocery store) are expected to open the week after. Parking spaces for 58 vehicles will be added shortly. In the meantime, pedestrian walkways have been reorganized and the lighting updated.


“This is an important day for everyone who lives in Le Cure, who will now have a new piazza that’s more aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly,” commented Dario Nardella, mayor of Florence.
