La piattaforma Riusiamo l'Italia serve per promuovere Azioni e progetti di semplicità civile. Essa deriva dal libro pubblicato nel 2014 dal Gruppo 24 ore “Riusiamo l'Italia. Da spazi vuoti a start up culturali e sociali” scritto da Giovanni Campagnoli con post-fazione di Roberto Tognetti. È un "road book" attivato da una ricerca sulle buone pratiche di riuso creativo degli spazi, oggi un modello di rilancio del sistema-paese in quanto l'Italia è "piena di spazi vuoti" e riuscire a riusarne anche solo una minima parte, affidandoli a delle start up culturali e sociali, può diventare una leva a basso costo per favorire l’occupazione e in particolare l'occupabilità giovanile.

The Royal Palace of Caserta is a former royal residence in Caserta, southern Italy, constructed by the House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies as their main residence as kings of Naples. It is one of the largest palaces erected in Europe during the 18th century. In 1997, the palace was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site; its nomination described it as "the swan song of the spectacular art of the Baroque, from which it adopted all the features needed to create the illusions of multidirectional space". In terms of volume, the Royal Palace of Caserta is one of the largest royal residences in the world with over 1 million m³ and covering an area of 47,000 m². The construction of the palace was begun in 1752 for Charles VII of Naples (Charles III of Spain), who worked closely with his architect, Luigi Vanvitelli. The palace has 5 floors, 1,200 rooms, including two dozen state apartments, a large library, and a theatre modelled after the Teatro San Carlo of Naples. The garden, a typical example of baroque extension of formal vistas, stretches for 120 ha, partly on hilly terrain. It is also inspired by the park of Versailles.
Raffaello Sanzio ( Urbino, 28 March 1483 - Rome, 6 April 1520 ) was a painter and architect Italian, among the most famous of the Renaissance. Considered one of the greatest artists of all time, his work marked an essential path for all subsequent painters and was of vital importance for the development of the artistic language of the centuries to come, giving life to a school that made art "in its own way" and that goes by the name of mannerism . A fundamental model for all the academies until the first half of the nineteenth century, its influence can also be seen in 20th century painters such as Salvador Dalí. His major paintings are in the Uffizi Museum in Florence.

The varied beauty of the architecture and the magical atmosphere belie the square's often brutal and bloody history, but the combination makes Red Square a truly fascinating place that you'll want to come back to again and again. Red Square, Russian Krasnaya Ploshchad, open square in Moscow adjoining the historic fortress and centre of government known as the Kremlin (Russian: Kreml). The Kremlin and Red Square were added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1990. Dating from the late 15th century, just after the Kremlin walls were completed, Red Square has long been a focal point in the social and political history of Russia and the former Soviet Union. It has had several names, but the present name has been used consistently since the later 17th century. Always a market area, the square has also housed, at various times, churches, Moscow’s first public library and university, a public theatre, and a printing house. Red Square has been the scene of executions, demonstrations, riots, parades, and speeches. Almost 800,000 square feet (73,000 square metres), it lies directly east of the Kremlin and north of the Moskva River. A moat that separated the square from the Kremlin was paved over in 1812. The State Historical Museum (built 1875–83) stands at the northern end of the square. Directly opposite, at its southern end, is the nine-towered Cathedral of St. Basil the Blessed (originally Church of the Intercession), built 1554–60 to commemorate the defeat of the Tatars (Mongols) of Kazan and Astrakhan by Ivan IV (the Terrible). Nearby is a white stone platform (Lobnoye Mesto) dating from the 16th century. From there, edicts and decrees were read to the assembled masses, and once a year the tsar would present himself to the people. GUM, the former State Department Store (built 1889–93; privatized 1993), is on the east side, and Lenin’s tomb, designed by Alexei Shchusev and completed in 1930, is on the west. Other graves near Lenin’s tomb flank the spruce-lined Kremlin wall.

Progettata dall’architetto Amedeo di Castellamonte per volontà del duca Carlo Emanuele II che voleva farne la sua residenza di caccia e costruita in pochissimo tempo, dal 1658 al 1679, la Reggia di Venaria è sicuramente una delle maggiori e più belle residenze sabaude. Imponente, fastosa, il suo progetto fu ripreso per la costruzione della reggia per antonomasia, quella di Versailles. La Reggia di Venaria fa parte dal 1997 del patrimonio dell’umanità dell’UNESCO. Il complesso, di cui fa parte la reggia, è costituito da circa 80.000 m2 di terreno calpestabile, include il parco ed il borgo storico di Venaria. Al borgo si unirono successivamente altre case e palazzi di semplici cittadini che vollero abitare nei dintorni della Reggia, fino a che Venaria Reale divenne comune autonomo della provincia di Torino. I giardini della reggia furono persi a causa dei francesi di Napoleone che li trasformarono in piazza d’armi. Solo in seguito furono ripresi i lavori di risanamento dell’ambientazione naturale circostante. Dal 2007, dopo otto anni di restauri, gli splendidi giardini del complesso della reggia di Venaria rappresentano il fiore all’occhiello di questa magnifica costruzione con gli spazi dei Giardini all’Inglese, quello dei Fiori e delle Rose, e l’area dei boschetti. Agli inizi del Settecento Filippo Juvarra lavorò al complesso e in particolare alla costruzione della Gran Galleria e parallelamente della Chiesa di Sant’Uberto, incastonata tra i palazzi tanto da non permetterne la costruzione della cupola. Gli ultimi lavori, che riguardavano le scuderie, il maneggio, la scala della Reggia di Diana e la galleria di Sant’Uberto furono realizzati tra la seconda metà del Settecento e l’inizio dell’Ottocento. Designed by the architect Amedeo di Castellamonte at the behest of Duke Carlo Emanuele II who wanted to make it his hunting lodge and built in a very short time, from 1658 to 1679, the Reggia di Venaria is certainly one of the largest and most beautiful Savoy residences. Imposing, sumptuous, his project was resumed for the construction of the palace par excellence, that of Versailles. The Reggia di Venaria has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. The complex, of which the palace is part, consists of approximately 80,000 m2 of walkable land, including the park and the historic village of Venaria. The village was later joined by other houses and palaces of ordinary citizens who wanted to live in the surroundings of the Royal Palace, until Venaria Reale became an independent municipality in the province of Turin. The palace gardens were lost due to Napoleon's French who transformed them into a parade ground. Only later were the restoration works of the surrounding natural setting resumed. Since 2007, after eight years of restorations, the splendid gardens of the palace complex of Venaria represent the flagship of this magnificent construction with the spaces of the English Gardens, that of Flowers and Roses, and the area of the groves . At the beginning of the eighteenth century Filippo Juvarra worked on the complex and in particular on the construction of the Grand Gallery and at the same time of the Church of Sant’Uberto, set between the palaces so as not to allow the construction of the dome. The last works, which concerned the stables, the riding school, the staircase of the Diana Palace and the Sant’Uberto gallery were carried out between the second half of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth century.
