The building comes formally to take on a symbolic value that is found in the following characteristics that define its “body”: the floor plan, linear and gently warped to the west through the writing of a variable sequence of broken lines; the choice of not wanting to create a “front and back” but a compositional score capable of creating amazement and wonder at the “metamorphosis” of the building, which will always be perceived in a different way thanks to its ability to react to the light at different times of day on different days of the year; the articulation of its functions, composed according to a principle of horizontal stratification, in a classic sequence of base; (“collective” functions or, better, that interface with the public), elevation (the predominant functions/ offices), the crown (the unexpected and unique space and its relationship with the sky); the entrance hall, highlighted according to a horizontal and vertical relationship thanks to the identification of a “union-separation” that becomes a “transparency-terrace” for four levels and reveals the Mazzoni water tank, an original and still intact element.
