Il Cantiere della cultura

Il Cantiere della cultura

The major renovation project of the former Sant' Agostino Hospital

The exhibition, promoted by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio of Modena, illustrates the great redevelopment project of the Sant’Agostino cultural centre signed by Studio Gae Aulenti Associated Architects, Consorzio Leonardo and Studio Doglioni-Daminato Associated Architects.

A rich iconographic material documents the interventions foreseen on this historical building, the basic criteria inspiring the project and the functions of the future cultural centre.
Within the restored Saint Augustine’s complex will be housed the state Este library and the civic art library “Luigi Poletti”, the University International Language Centre, an exhibition venue, an auditorium and other spaces for various events and public initiatives, beside the new Centre of Photography and Image which will be hosting all the activities carried out by the Fondazione Fotografia Modena.
