The former movie theatre Maestoso, initially built in 1912, now presents itself as a sporting vocation building. The renovation project was conceived as a unique organization but realized through a metamorphosis of shapes, which, starting from the maintenance of some portions of the facade with memories of the '30s, are transformed into reinterpretations of stylistic elements of the past (re-proposal of the marbles that once adorned the cinema’s entrance), up to the proposition of new contemporary forms and materials like the new brass coating and the roof made of glass tiles.
