The Market square is one of the Sant'Agostino reconstruction projects after the earthquake that struck the city of Ferrara in 2012. The project involves the realization of a new square and the construction of a sheltered facility for the local market. The square was designed as a large empty room. The room is designed for special events and is surrounded by trees and shrubs that clearly define its perimeter. The new local market structure is a 4 meters rectangular flat roof measuring 20 x 25 meters, made of reinforced concrete and supported by 14 steel columns. The roof is characterized by concrete beams structure interrupted by a large circular hole 8.4 meters wide. The hole defines the space for a little garden surrounded by a bench. The structure is flexible enough to host collective events or recreational and cultural activities when the market is not active. Besides being a daily support for the local commerce, it aims at becoming a new fulcrum for the social life. Its presence, on the former site of the destroyed town hall, will collaborate to the reconstruction of a new sense of community among the inhabitants.
