Saint Rocco by Luigi Valente + Mauro Di Bona
Alexander Zaxarov
Sep 27, 2019

Architects Luigi Valente and Mauro Di Bona have renovated the former church of Saint Rocco in southern Italy into a theatre with a black and white interior.

The project is aimes to achieve the functional restoration of the former Saint Rocco’s church, for cultural purposes, while transforming it into a permanent theater and a multi-purpose hall. Mildly maintained over the years, the building has been affected by general renovation works on the roof with the addition of a reinforced concrete curb stiffened by transversal steel tie rods and the replacement of the original roof with a concrete and masonry structure.

Being the building bound and of secular construction, however having a public non-religious theatrical destination from an earlier period to 1967, the works of stage adjustment, maintenance of the installations, safety and furnishing were necessary to make the hall functionally suitable to be used as a conference room and theater hall.
