Gardens and historic parks represent an important cultural heritage resource in the urban structure. This paper analyses a case study in order to encourage the active "conservation" of open spaces. The physical setting of this research is an area in Milan included between the Guastalla Garden and the nearby Garden of the Sormani State Library. Our hypothesis explores different solutions in order to find new physical connections between these two historical gardens, through the design of temporary and reversible architectural structures dedicated to public functions such as exhibition, cultural enterprises and social facilities. The aim of this strategy is to enhance historical sites, not just to protect them from damaging development. The presence of public functions leads us to define a new approach to the concept of enhancement, and allows us to translate reversible structures into an item able to transform the site and develop the quality of life in the city.
