Here come "Le isole del tesoro ("The Treasure Islands"), a regional campus for contemporary culture, conceived and organized by iMage, and promoted by the Region of Tuscany, with the objective of encouraging a sensibility for contemporary architectural research in the Tuscan territory while also respecting the landscape and the history of the cities involved.

5+1AA, Carlini & Valle Architetti Associati, Gruppo A12, Ian+, Id-lab, maO, Marco Navarra (NOWA) are the architects who tutored, from October to November 2006, a number of young neo-architects with the aim of renewing the visions of Tuscany.

The project, curated by Paola Bortolotti and Marco Brizzi, and coordinated by Franco Filippini, involved eight municipalities (Capoliveri, Lastra a Signa, Peccioli, Poggio a Caiano, Prato, Rio nell'Elba, San Gimignano, San Giovanni Valdarno) in seven architectural design workshops, each lasting a week. The goals of the workshops were to elaborate concepts and ideas for the spatial qualification of specific areas in the eight cities.
