Project Description


The project of the Esselunga Superstore Le Torri Shopping Centre in Cintoia was born from the desire of the Esselunga management to have their shopping centres designed by great Italian architects, in this case the architect. Mario Botta. The volumes arrangement, the openings and the vaults help to simulate a structural wall system. In reality, the structure is made entirely of reinforced concrete. A double metal beam in the shape of a fish supports the roof.
