formar bank of italy

Palazzo CorteVerdi su La Provincia

La Provincia di Cremona dedicates an article to Stefano Boeri Architetti’s project for the redevelopment of the former Bank of Italy in Cremona, presented on 10 May in the presence of the mayor Gianluca Galimberti and councillor Andrea Virgilio.

The architecture, overlooking Piazza Stradivari, recalls the architecture of the Banks of Italy of the period and evokes the image of a fortress, closed and introverted.
The project reworks the bank’s previous function in a residential key, also through the addition of new open spaces, loggias and terraces in the inner courtyard: a light metal structure draws a pattern of solids and voids, guaranteeing a high level of natural lighting of the interior spaces and at the same time enhancing the visual link between the building’s interior and exterior.
The ground floor, on the other hand, in line with the design principles on which the intervention is based, sees a reconnection with the city, thanks to the use of the portico, outside, for collective functions – literally opening up the building to interaction with the city.

Overall, Stefano Boeri Architetti’s intervention, in line with the studio’s design approach and previous architectural and urban redevelopment experiences, aims to give the former Banca d’Italia building in Cremona added value, both functional and environmental, starting from the principles of reducing land consumption, redevelopment of the building, energy adaptation and enhancement of its relationship with its context. Maintaining a strong relationship with the historical pre-existence, the project preserves its formal external appearance, opening up in the internal courtyard the revisitation of the façades, in a contemporary key.

The news was also reported by other national newspapers such as Cremona Sera.
