The Grand Hotel San Pellegrino Terme
Location: viale Bortolo Belotti, 3 – 24016 San
Pellegrino Terme (BG)

Company: Municipality of San Pellegrino
Terme

Sector: Tourism

San Pellegrino Terme is the pearl of the Brembana Valley, a sophisticated art nouveau treasure trove whose internationally acclaimed, top quality mineral water sets it apart from other towns.
Although originally characterised by poverty, plague and rural homes, once the production
of mineral water started in the 19th century, San Pellegrino started setting itself apart and
developing an architecture unlike any other in the valley. San Pellegrino’s history did not, however, commence with art nouveau, but with 15th century relics and 18th century religious buildings before the main attractions arrived on the scene, the Casino and Grand Hotel of the Belle Époque.
The construction of elegant private homes and public spaces, that offer a sensation of walking through the past, continued until the second World War.

The project:
The Grand Hotel, an architectural symbol of the Italian Liberty period, was built in 1905.
The property is comprised of a basement floor, six stories and an attic with a secondary body of minor dimensions. The redevelopment project of the hotel facility will respect the original architecture and structure, with the objective of restoring all the architectural and decorative elements both inside and outside. The project foresees the realization of a wellness centre, 110 rooms (with an area of about 40 sqm), while the attic space will host services for clients.
The requalification intervention of the Grand Hotel is part of the wider project of touristic and employment development in the Brembana Valley, that over the years has had other requalification interventions of the main buildings of the city, amongst which the Thermal Centre (a wellness centre built in Liberty style), the city Casino (restored and enlarged for meetings, congresses and weddings), the San Pellegrino Mineral Water warehouse and the funicular station.

The former convent of Santa Lucia: a coffer
in the heart of Mantua

Location: via Frattini 26/28, Mantova
Company: Foundation Luigi e Eleonora
Gonzaga ONLUS

Sector: Commercial, Student Housing Industrial,
Logistic

Mantova (Mantua) is a city in the region of Lombardy and capital of the province of the same name. In 2007, Mantova’s old town and Sabbioneta were declared by UNESCO to be World Heritage Sites. Mantova’s historic power and influence under the Gonzaga family has made it one of the main artistic, cultural, and especially musical hubs of Northern Italy, and the country as a whole. Mantova is noted for its significant role in the history of opera; the city is also known for its architectural treasures and artifacts, elegant palaces, and its medieval and Renaissance cityscape. Mantova is surrounded on three sides by artificial lakes, created during the 12th century, as the city’s defence system. The area and its environs are important not only in naturalistic terms, but also anthropologically and historically.

The project:
The fifteenth-century Santa Lucia convent still shows signs of a glorious past, although it has not been used for a long time. The ambitious project proposed by Fondazione Gonzaga aims to restore this precious city space but it also entails a considerable extension of the building. The objective is to re-use the space, which is compatible both with the needs of the present and the convent’s legacy, the protection and elevation of which we want to promote.

The operational reorganization foresees mixed functions: accomodations/tourism, hab-lab, offices/studios, and commerce/residence.

The proposed re-use can be altered according to the building’s structure.
The 20/30 year term management or potential co-management with the Fondazione could represent the return of an initial investment of the convent restoration, with the
possible prospect of selling a part of it.

The port yard 199,300 sq m.) has port service operators equipped to move grain, coils, containers and other bulk materials.

The strategic position of the project area and Port of Valdaro, crossed by the A22 Brennero motorway, means it perfectly complements traffic directed towards the European Quadrant in Verona. In fact, Port of Valdaro port can be considered an internationally important trimodal platform within the above system, with railway connections to the national railway network. 2,850,000 square meters are available for artisan and industrial production type nearby.
