The project starts with the wish of using the government building as an element joining the historical center’s public spaces. For this reason we avoided the idea of a big square with the building in its background but instead we chose to create a game of squares in which the new building is the main character. The building appears with a certain air of monolith but it is broken in its interior creating a patio. A patio that connects with the exterior on ground level working as another square but closes up on higher levels.
