AMATE AMATRICE: A NEW BEGINNING FOR THE TOWN

December 23, 2016

The school refectory has been built thanks to the fundraising organized by Corriere della Sera and TG La7 and with the fundamental contribution of Filiera del legno Friulia Venezia Giulia’s companies and the great support of Artemide and Tim.

The refectory building is the first of a set of structures, built with wooden prefabricated modular elements, that will define a new open public space for Amatrice: a food hub that will give a job to more than 130 citizens and will regenerate the local economy.

Besides the food services, the refectory includes a large multifunctional area with a great glass wall looking towards Sibillini Mountains. The project is a miracle that shows that it can be possible to build with very short construction time, low budget, high level of safety, paying great attention to quality.
