PARCO CASA DELLA MUSICA
PIEVE DI CENTO
Via Circonvallazione Levante 63
The Casa della Musica is a project born in the city of Pieve di Cento, thanks to Trust Nuova Polis Onlus, developed by the Studio MCA Mario Cucinella Architects, with the important participation of local young engineers and architects during the “Workshop Ricostruzione”. It is one of the five works carried out in the cities hit by the 2012’s earthquake thanks to the Solidarity Found wanted by Confindustria, CGIL, CISL, UIL and Confservizi, which had a broad approval from workers and enterprises. The complex was inaugurated on the 29th May 2017, in the presence of President Mattarella. It was built in Pieve di Cento in the ex- Lamborghini area, and it develops in nine circular laboratories, which remind for the disposition and the architectonical details, an orchestra with wooden interiors and exteriors, to allow a high acoustic output. The concept of the project was composed by different ideas: from the architectonical research to the social, cultural and musical function. The creators wanted to create a space for music, but also a point for meetings and sharing, surrounded by a park and easily reachable from the city centre by a dedicated bike path.
To the architectural and engineering point of view the technical and project tricks are countless and contribute to characterize the opera with remarkable energetics and acoustic performances. The night-lighting is enchanting too and it makes the complex recognisable from the city centre.
