The building and the connected landscape presented in this paper are part of the province of Ferrara and are included in the Delta Po Natural Regional Park, located in an isolated place along the shore of the Adriatic Sea, close to the delta of the Po river. The area, looking inland, is characterized by the presence of a lagoon, a thick set of reeds and low Mediterranean vegetation linked to tortuous channels flowing into the sea. The Goro Lighthouse, built in 1950 by the Italian Navy, replaced the 19th century "Old Lantern" that had stood at the sea edge, but due to the progressive fluvial deposits, became 4 km inland, unusable as a functional navy signal facility. The area offers several spectaculars views, an exceptional cultural landscape and a pristine natural environment. From the Lighthouse looking East it is possible to enjoy the beauty of the Mediterranean Sea and, looking South, the fascinating view of the meandering channels that unravel between the vegetation is revealed. Considering the context of the area, assuming the historical-architectural character and the environmental values that the Lighthouse embodies, this building can be implicitly seen as the symbol of Goro town itself. From the typological and morphological point of view, the Goro Lighthouse is a typical Italian coastal structure erected between the 19th and 20th centuries. The main aim of the project is the creation of a place to meet, relax and experience wellness, valorizing the awesomeness of the river, the valley and the marine environment. Considering the interiors of the Lighthouse, its conditions and its context, the compatible reuse project suggests a restaurant with guest accommodation, joined with the design of a multifunctional space for events and meetings.
