Silos Trieste

Trieste will have its own convention and commercial complex. The project, so called Silos, has been illustrated by the Local Council. The plan includes the "rebirth" of the ex Silos of Piazza Libertà, which will become the new grand, local  "multi-functional centre" where to place also the much awaited new Convention Centre, finallly of adeguate dimensions with respect to the current demands and the future opportunities for Trieste. The building of the convention complex will represent the first part of the works planned.

The project has been explained by Architect Aldo Pavani: "It involves the construction of an underground parking that, together with an above-ground one, can host up to 825 cars; thus, moving up, at ground floor, the auto-courier terminal - that can also be directly connected to Binary N.1 of the Train Station where High Speed Trains will arrive; the entrance of the commercial mall will develop with shops and activities even through a long gallery with glass walls; the entrance hall of the hotel which will extend furth with its rooms into the above floors, in the part of the Silos looking towards the sea; on the first floor will be restaurants, shops, a large wellness-firness area and Convention Centre, this latter will have a main hall for 1,100 places (that eventually can be divided according to necessity into a series of minor spaces), and two smaller halls, one for 200 places, the oher for 100; on the second floor (apart from other hotel rooms overlooking the sea), more restaurative spaces and offices. On the third floor more hotel and offices.

A large covered square is also due to be placed at the centre of the Silos, to be used as third hall for specific events and meetings, as well as other minor spaces, with the hypothesis of a winter garden." The cost of the project, which should be ready by 2017, is of 120 million Euros.
