The executive project envisages the recovery of the entire building, valorising it as a whole, both regarding the structures of the old Renaissance convent, and the more rational spaces of the 19th century “factory”. Nine sections, and in particular a large glass covering that transforms the courtyard into an “urban piazza”, complete the intervention for enhancing the use and accessibility in relation to the rest of the city.
