A building born at the end of the 19th Century as a railway house, transformed during the 20th Century into a cinematographic ensemble and then into a laboratory of contemporary art, is today the headquarter of the Fondazione Riccardo Catella, which holds a 100% green energy certification and 0 CO2 emissions.
The restoration has returned to the community an example of industrial archeology: the development enhanced its external part while the historical structure has been safeguarded and integrated with some modern functionalities.
