The former C. Forlanini Hospital, considered at the time it was opened as an avant-garde construction, is today in a state of serious neglect. The structure, which for years represented one of the best public health centers, as well as a point of reference for those living in the nearby Monteverde suburb, is now at the center of a debate where the inhabitants of the area, having set up a local committee, are trying to individuate new and suitable functions for the complex that could lead to a reuse and enhancement of the health institute. This paper continues and completes the article “The former C. Forlanini Hospital Complex in Rome: The construction”, contained in this same volume. It is the result of a detailed analysis, carried out from when the need had already been identified by the XII Municipality and by the requests of the local citizens, and with an objective to evaluate the compatibility of the structure with current daily needs. In study, three macro-functions for the complex were identified – health, university and public. Following, other new possibilities for use will be assessed conforming with the spaces available and their sizes, respecting the complex’s history and entirety. The main challenge appears to be the assessment of the compatibility of the space of the old hospital wards with modern health functions, studying the possibility to use them for orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation centers, a facility for Alzheimer patients and a Day hospital. These functions would seem to be particularly useful given the proximity of San Camillo and Spallanzani, highly specialized hospital complexes.
