Station Bologna Centrale / Arata Isozaki + Andrea Maffei

Station Bologna Centrale / Arata Isozaki + Andrea Maffei it has been modified: 2011-05-03 di nadia Saglietti

The new Bologna Central Station will be completed in 2015, according to the draft Arata Isozaki + Andrea Maffei, Winner of the competition held in 2008.

The structure fits into the urban fabric while maintaining the heights of the surrounding buildings and is characterized by a single dominant color: white. This allows the building to detach itself lightly from the context, making itself immediately visible and manifest, but without hiding what is around it.


The station is an important hub for transport, as a connector between the urban system and that of the national railway network, creating welcoming spaces, equipping them with commercial and waiting areas.

Each level is put in communication with the upper one and the one below through wells of light that interrupt the otherwise linear course of the structure with fluid shapes.



The building will also house some services for the city, including a theater, a sports complex and a congress hall.
