The Cultural Centre is composed of two intersecting areas distinguished both by form and material. A transparent space housing the district library and the community centre, is penetrated by a second, massive body containing the multi-purpose hall. The structural glass façade emphasises the public nature of the building, providing permeability and transparency and conveying reciprocal spatial relations between inside and outside. The cultural centre, which can be accessed from the “Angela Nikoletti” public square, includes a multi-purpose hall, rooms for the civic centre and the district library. The multi- purpose hall on the ground floor is directly accessible from the main square and therefore particularly suitable for cultural events that take place at the same time on the square and in the hall.
