The restoration of the Vicopisano Former Furnace is a good example of thew recovery of an important industrial architecture building as part of the local cultural heritage.
The shape is the essential element of the newly proposed functions. The potentiality of this building goes beyond the short time it was actively used for industrial purposes.
The importance of the historical aspects is highlighted by the recovery and reuse od spaces and places which have characterized our land throughout time.
The former furnace comes to a new life. The recovery and reuse of its historically most important features, as the Hoffman furnace, is aimed to bring back to life the gestures, functions and actions of every-day working life, to remark essential moments of its historical community.
