Text description provided by the architects. Just a few meters from one of the mostbeautiful straights of the Renaissancedefensive walls complex, within the compact urban structure of the historic center of Ferrara, an existing building from the early fifties reaches a bold new facethrough a surgery intervention of recovery and expansion.

The consolidated architectural body,growing in height in search of aspectacular view of the horizon and leavingthe traditional brick cladding, changes its skin, resulting in a material standing presence, simple and rigorous, with carved openings that meet the original layout geometry. Fields of color and tone variations, demarcated by three-dimensional carvings in the wall surfaces,stir the ingredients of the commonlanguage of urban housing, and give the elevations a taste of contemporary, while retaining the building, protected by the laws of the Architectural and Environmental Heritage Office, an elegantand austere character.
