 Villa Cordano is a XVIIth century villa in the center of Genoa, recast several times over the centuries until it assumed its present shape around the 30s, when it was transformedintotheCollege“PioIstitutoArtigianelli”,foundedbyDonMontebruno. It is a building of about 3500 square meters on six floors, with outside areas.
The property is owned by the Foundation “Opere Pie Riunite” of Genoa, whose president is Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, who intends to recover the Villa in order to focus on a single structure a series of social assistance activities currently located in different parts of city.
Objective of the project is the recovery of the internal spaces of the building to realize social housing and spaces for social welfare organizations of various kinds. The project stands as a whole as a conservative recovery, with the elimination of superfluous additions made over time, that in some cases compromise the readability of the space, with particular reference to some of the local vaulted.
The exception is the construction of an elevator system - made necessary by the type of use - that will serve all floors of the property and will be included within an area already much altered over time.
The planned activities are as follows:
- Ground floor: distributing clothes and children’s activities;
- First floor: kindergarden for families in need;
- Second floor: common spaces for associations; foster home (8 beds); caretaker housing (2 beds);
- Second floor mezzanine: temporary housing for mothers (4 beds);
- Third floor: assisted living for people with disabilities (12 beds);
- Fourth floor: foster home (12 beds);
- Fifth floor: temporary housing for families in need (16 beds).
