Brownfield Former Cornigliano Market

Short Overview

The former market is located in the district of Cornigliano, in the west area of the city, near the train station and the road, which is currently being implemented and runs along the sea (a 6-lane road that will connect Sampierdarena to Sestri Ponente by channelling the traffic coming from the Genova Aeroporto motorway exit, that will no longer pass through the urban traffic). Towards the sea, the ILVA factory is located on the other side of the railway road.

This is an independent building of just one floor and it is surrounded by four streets with parking areas (there are few pedestrian zones). There are 19th- and 20th-century residential buildings of five or six floors facing the square.

The market is protected by a restriction of the Superintendent and is composed of a metal structure with a pitched roof with fibre cement planed panels. The perimeter of the building has a square shape, develops on a single level and forms a great space, which includes bathrooms and storage rooms.

The Municipality Market was in use until 2010 and in spite of the long period of abandon, the citizens think of it as a potential resource for their district (as you can see by the controversy generated by the integration of the market in the alienation plan and the cleaning and animation activities, which have been carried on).
