As a part of the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016, ‘Campo Libero’ showed how Italian confiscated land can be better utilized.

The exhibit, inside the Italian pavilion at the event, was designed by 'Conceptual Devices' -- a company that seeks to create economic and social impact with its designs. The project was created with the help of 'Taking Care' and 'TAM associati' -- with teams who worked to create a mobile intervention design that would aid areas in the country that were affected by organized crime.

In the exhibit is information regarding the problem of confiscated land and the solutions that the team is taking to help those within these areas. This includes models and sketches of the mobile units, as well as program plans that will promote a better reality for the disadvantaged Italian suburbs.
