The building, former central market of the city, has to his back a long and complex history of attempts of making it re-live. The building, it’s a cultural center and simultaneously it’s a covered permeable, able to be crossed and with public access and sight on the ruins. The lighting project answers on the one hand to the architectural local characteristics and on the other hand to the functional needs. By day the transparency shows the interior. By night it operates as a lantern, that places and distinguishes in the surroundings. The building is illuminated from the interior, and goes out towards the exterior.
