Architectural Backdrop for Ferrara (IT)

Example of modern proposal of the footprint, but not the volume, of a historical element that no longer exists
The bombing of the city of Ferrara in 1944 spared its beautiful Cathedral, destroying, however, its Sacristy and isolating the bell tower from the body of the Church. The architectural and urban redevelopment of the square and its cathedral provides for a great architectural backdrop overlooking Piazza Trento-Trieste, which reproduces the original footprint of the Sacristy without expanding its entire volume. Behind this backdrop, there is a vertical path, connecting the square to the interior of the tower, which gives it new life and reorganizes it as a new urban cultural area.
