The main objective of the Campobasso Municipality in the Revival project is the valorisation of the Ex School House E. D'Ovidio and other historic buildings to be included in a pathway to discover the architecture of the twentieth century, to be proposed to tourists and citizens.

The Ex School House E. D'Ovidio is meant to become an integrated cultural centre, where the design synergies and the professionalism of institutional partners can develop a fruitful dialogue for the cultural heritage system. The themes of valorization will be linked with: valorization of local gastronomy; music concerts; art and photographs exhibitions; theatre plays; Comics; training workshops; poetry readings, etc.

The ROUTE starts from the railway station (A) to continues towards the "Mario Pagano" boarding school (B) and the Bank of Italy in Corso Mazzini (C). From there people can stop at the Savoia Theater (D) and approach the Covered Market (E) and the School House (F), until reaching the Ex GIL via Milano (G), a clear example of “lictorian” style, and finish the path in Palazzo di Penta (H), built-in 1936 thanks to the work of a Jewish architect of Polish origin.
