Like Sagnino, this suburban area was also initially an IACP low-cost working-class housing estate, with the attempt to reach a discrete residential density while including generous green areas in the development and community spaces. At Prestino this initial momentum was enriched in the following years by other interesting experiments on the same theme, reflecting the development of typological research in the field of facilitated residential construction.
