From the concept design of arch. Antonio Mattia Acito MOSAE designs and builds the redevelopment of an eighteenth-century tuff quarry taking care of the realization of the covered multifunctional space, of the support structures and of the arena, finishing in record time for the inaugural ceremony of Matera European Capital of Culture 2019.

Starting from the arch. Acito’s project, made of lightness and transparency, MOSAE has found a technical solution that respect the concept and allow to define every individual technological solution.

The new elements try to impact as little as possible with the place and are ready to be removed when the structure will leave the quarry. These wooden and metal structures are strictly dry-made and easy to assemble, disassemble and re-use.

Covered multifunctional space of 1200 square meters.

The same prefabricated modules used outdoors create the spaces for the services of the congress and event center intended to operate throughout the year. Restaurant, infopoint, bookshop, bike sharing and toilets.
