The architecture of the new Centre, essential pole for the city in the next future, re-interprets the main aspects of the urban and natural surroundings. The new building is located inside the historic garden of the Episcopal Palace, on the higher part of the area, minimizing the land use and maintaining the morphology and the function of its cultivated terraces as much as possible intact.
The complex, adapted to the morphology of the site, is opened to the city becoming urban park, theatre, forum and arena, but also atelier, workshop, exhibition space.
