the project aims to revitalize the area “la favorita”, creating a new cultural and multi-functional centre as a lively pole of attraction for citizens and visitors, granting a great flexibility both ideally and structurally in the use of spaces for different functions. The project completely respects previous Gio Ponti architectural building: a mansion never completed due to the Second World War explosion, of which remain only the foundations. The clean and neutral volume of the new structure leans on them, maintaining a slightly separate level, in the attempt to preserve and evaluate Gio Ponti original planning idea. For this reason the foundations perimeter has been preserved and the inner partitions, not suitable with their destinations, have been emptied.
