Concise account of work carried out
The project involves the structural renewal of the building, with the technological-environmental modernization and the energy, architectural and functional requalification, and the start of the reconditioning of the Mandracchio area. Among the purposes of the project, there is the strengthening of the identity of the fish market, as a strategic workplace, architectural value, linked to tradition and synthesis of the relationship between the sea, the city and the territory. Another objective is to encourage the interaction of this space with the city: in addition to maintaining the fish market activity, it will have a restaurant business for the enhancement of the fish product, with an area of 250 square meters and 70 seats, and an area for the rediscovery of the historical activities of the netters and others related to the world of fishing.
The renovation project provides for the maintenance in use of the operation of the fish market and of the traders housed within the three buildings subject to intervention.
