The Norcia Multifunctional Centre designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti will open on June 30th at 12.00 pm, thanks to #UnAiutoSubito.

Milan, June 2017 – On June 30th at 12.00 pm, in the presence of Italian institutions and citizens, there will be the opening ceremony of the first pavilion, part of the Multifunctional Centre for the Norcia’s territory cultural and economical promotion, designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti with funds raised by Un Aiuto Subito – sponsored by Corriere della Sera and TG La7.

The opened pavilion is the first one of four projects planned to complete the Multifunctional Centre that will allow people living in Norcia to use temporary collective spaces, while expecting the reconstruction of their public buildings damaged by the October 30th 2016 earthquake.

The four wood made pavilions that compose the Multifunctional Centre, built thanks to the contribution of Filiera del Legno Friulana, will be raised around a central square, and will be characterized by their sinuous pitched roof.

Each pavilion, with its own orientation and shape, will create unique relations and perspectives on the surrounding landscape, which is characterized by the “marcite” in the south part and by the dense historic centre within the walls on the north side.

The opening of the first Pavilion of the Multifunctional Centre is a new important turning point toward the reconstruction of one of the most damaged areas by the earthquake that happened in central Italy.

Nicola Alemanno, Norcia’s Mayor, declared: “even if there are still many things to do, we are now working to realize a gastronomic event in which the commercial activities, present in Norcia before the earthquake, can participate with their stands and their products”.

The opening ceremony will be preceded by the walk “Nel Cratere. Un LABoratorio per la Ricostruzione” at 9.00 am; which is part of a series of surveys in the earthquake damaged areas.

This initiative is an introduction to the 3 working days that will be held in Norcia and Spoleto on Friday 30th of June, Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd of July, directed by Stefano Boeri and the architect Maria Chiara Pastore. Those 3 days are thought as a moment of synthesis, meeting and connection on the problematic theme of urban and architectural development planning, between the various subjects of the areas damaged by earthquakes within the last months. All those activities are parts of the actions that Ordini degli Architetti del Centro Italia, which constituted themselves in the permanent “Epicentro” organisation with the leadership of “Ordine di Rieti”, are conducing in collaboration with Vasco Errani (Special Commissioner for the Reconstruction) and his Urbanism counselor Stefano Boeri.

Italian text:

Il 30 giugno a Norcia si inaugura il Centro Polivalente progettato da Stefano Boeri Architetti, grazie a #UnAiutoSubito Comunicato stampa Milano, giugno 2017 Il 30 giugno alle ore 12.00, alla presenza delle istituzioni e dei cittadini, verrà inaugurato il primo padiglione del Centro Polivalente per la valorizzazione economico culturale del territorio nursino, realizzato da Stefano Boeri Architetti con i fondi raccolti da Un Aiuto Subito – Corriere della Sera e TG La7.

Il padiglione inaugurato è il primo dei quattro previsti per completare l’Area Polivalente che permetterà ai cittadini di Norcia di disporre di spazi collettivi temporanei in attesa della ricostruzione integrale degli edifici pubblici danneggiati dal sisma del 30 ottobre 2016.

Costruiti in legno (con il contributo della Filiera del Legno Friulana), le architetture del Centro Polivalente saranno disposte intorno ad una piazza centrale e caratterizzate dall’andamento sinuoso della copertura a falde. La forma e l’orientamento di ciascun padiglione genererà relazioni e prospettive nuove sul paesaggio circostante, caratterizzato dalle “marcite” a sud e dal centro storico denso e compatto della città “dentro le mura” a nord.

L’inaugurazione del primo Padiglione del Centro Polivalente è un nuovo importante tassello al percorso di ricostruzione di uno dei territori maggiormente colpiti dal sisma che ha ferito il centro Italia. Il Sindaco di Norcia Nicola Alemanno ha dichiarato: “anche se il lavoro da svolgere è ancora tanto, stiamo lavorando per allestire una manifestazione gastronomica in cui le attività che erano presenti nel borgo prima del terremoto potranno riproporsi, con i loro stand e i loro prodotti”. L’inaugurazione del nuovo Padiglione sarà preceduta alle ore 9.00 dalla camminata “Nel Cratere. Un LABoratorio per la Ricostruzione” che rientra nel ciclo dei sopralluoghi nelle zone colpite dal sisma.

Questa iniziativa è propedeutica alla tre giorni di lavori che si terrà a Norcia e Spoleto, venerdì 30 giugno, sabato 1 e domenica 2 luglio, a cura di Stefano Boeri e dell’architetto Maria Chiara Pastore, pensata come momento di sintesi, di incontro e raccordo sul complesso tema della pianificazione urbanistica e architettonica tra i vari soggetti delle diverse aree geografiche interessate dagli eventi sismici dei mesi scorsi.

Tutte queste attività si inseriscono nelle azioni che gli Ordini degli Architetti del Centro Italia, che si sono costituiti nel coordinamento permanente “Epicentro” di cui l’Ordine di Rieti è capofila, stanno portando avanti anche in collaborazione con il Commissario Straordinario per la Ricostruzione Vasco Errani e il suo consulente per l’Urbanistica Stefano Boeri.
