Abstract

The city of Ljubljana brings with it, indelible traces of the creativity and originality of one of the great masters of Central European modernity Jože Plečnik; his work does not proceed according to an impersonal and universal planning, built from above on the cards: the story that interests Plečnik is that which has a beginning and an end and concerns the people who live in the city. An urban project that is realized starting from an incessant work of architectural design, as in a screenplay the sequence of urban events, conceived by the architect, becomes the story of a story, with its characters and the dialogue between the parties. Plečnik pursued a precise design, working on the monumentalization of the compositional elements of the public space, that of building a new historical memory for the city, All his great work, however, can not find fulfillment and his long career as a designer remain more numerous the projects of realizations, the sign of its renewal remains intact. Beginning in 2004, the Municipality of Ljubljana launched an ambitious project to restore its role as a major catalyst for the city's charm and economy, as Plečnik had intended. An investment of over 20 million euros involves many young professional firms of the city, for the realization of projects mostly related to the urban infrastructure of Ljubljanica, from the center to the more peripheral areas of the city.
