around the roman temple, the water plans that once surrounded it, are alluded by the intro-duction of a single water plan that surround the entire temple and simultaneously preserves and expands at its reflection. the tank is constructed as a separate piece and totally unrelated to the temple. the area immediately around the temple and the new water plan is highlighted by the slight recess of the floor. the intervention on the garden of diana is more assertive in the need for clarification of the qualities of the place, with a generous tree cover, which reflects the climate of this landscape vegetation.
