    The best thing that you can do, assuming that the land is already owned by whoever is installing the park/square and there are no buildings on it that will have to be cleared, is to contact the various local construction contractors in your area, show them your plans and ideas and get estimates and/or bids. Then go with the lowest one if it fits into your budget. I have no idea what the going rate for labor and materials is in northern Italy.

    There is never any set costs. It really depends on the features, size, etc. You will need to figure out what you expect on the site, and then bid it out. Without exactly what you want to do, no one is going to be able to tell you what it will cost.
    A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. -Douglas Adams
