A techno-cultural urban neighborhood will be built between the neighboring cities of Nova Gorica in Slovenia and Gorizia in Italy ahead of their joint European Capital of Culture (ECoC) 2025 title project in what is now a update of the initial plan to strengthen ties between the two cities. This is what was reported by The Slovenian Press Agency (STA)

The investment that will link the two cities together in the spirit of the shared project has extended from the initial idea of ​​Piazza Europa to a larger area between Nova Gorica and Gorizia along the Slovenian-Italian border.
The ECoC district is the start of a major upgrade of the border area from the Mostovna cultural center in the north to the University of Nova Gorica in the south. This border area, about three kilometers long, is the area that will begin to connect the two cities, the Municipality of Nova Gorica said in a statement.
The project is carried out in collaboration with local communities, local businesses and a university research group. The district will provide what Nova Gorica currently lacks and will be dedicated to the environment, education, science, technology, culture and new forms of mobility, the municipality added.
The district will host the Green Technology Center, a hub of laboratories and activities that will support SMEs in particular in the development of products and services derived from green technologies. The project also includes the construction of new structures for the university.
"We propose to make the best use or reuse of this space," said Boštjan Vuga with the architecture firm Sadar + Vuga presenting the concept. Nova Gorica also aims to upgrade its train station by 2025 and build an elevated road on the tracks that will help connect the city centers of Nova Gorica and Gorizia via Piazza Europa, also scheduled for renovation by 2025.
That year, the two cities will jointly host the European Capital of Culture under the slogan Go! Borderless after winning the designation in December 2020.
