Public Swimming Pool

Prof. Arch. Fabrizio Rossi Prodi, Engr. Massimiliano Larinni

The pool lies in a valley on the shores of Santerno that flows to the south of Firenzuola. It has a main pool and a children's one, changing rooms, a bar and a small gym with a sauna. The facilities are surrounded by spacious outdoor areas, with pergolas and porticos. Pietra Forte Fiorentina quarried from the mountains surrounding Firenzuola, wood from the forests and the colour of water and nature are the construction materials. The structure is in masonry clad in Pietra Forte Fiorentina, with a horizontal motif consisting of elongated slabs alternating with Pietra di Trani. The outdoor and part of the indoor pavement is made of Pietra Forte Fiorentina. A grid of wooden beams covers the areas and creates loggias, supports the roofing clad in aluminium-zinc. Window frames and doors are also made of wood.
