The substitution of the existing TC antenna in Salerno (near Naples) gives the opportunity for reshape the entire hill, situated in a densely populated area rich of archeological sites such as Paestum. The hill is also spotted with 2WW bunkers which are used as observation spots onto the amazing views over Costiera Amalfitana. The hill will be topped by the new antenna, a concrete-structured tower twisted towards the city and conceived to be a window on the panorama around and towards the sky from the inside. In this way the antenna, yet not accessible, becomes a quite but powerful landmark.
