Hennebique Silos


The former Hennebique silos is a surprising and daring example of Art Deco. The 200 m long building directly on the seashore offers ample opportunities for reuse.

Restructuring by Vitali & Roncello Capital obtained the 90-year concession from Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority and are currently transforming it into a multifunction pole.

Also, nearby Tabarca and Metelino buildings will shortly be restructured in the overall harmonization and requalification of the whole area.

The goal of the intervention is to valorize and improve the context, enhancing cruise and touristic services considering the short distance from the Cruise Terminal, Maritime Station, Old Port and Town. Student housing included in the projects will strengthen synergies with the University.

Last but not least, small commerce, leisure and sports facilities will allow a continuous use of the area by all citizens, further improving requalification of the whole quarter.

Works should start in 2022 and take around 26 months for completion.
