In the year 2000, a pedestrian path was being built on the seafront, of great urbanistic importance, because it allowed the creation of a place designated for walking and resting on the seafront. Two sections were built starting to the right and left of Hungary Square, the central square, interposing between the residential built front and the beach. With the current project, a series of essential completion works are intended to ensure better usability and livability of the path. The main problem with the current arrangement is the lack of shade in the seating areas, a fact that makes them practically unusable during the summer period. To overcome this inconvenience, a series of painted aluminum pergolas, supported by steel poles, were designed on which to grow creepers. Equal arbor elements are used to mark the departures of the pedestrian paths from Hungary Square and the access paths to the sea from Litoranea Street, which cannot be identified today.
