Tettoia “Nervi” (Piazza Lucio Dalla)

Floor plan scale 1:100

In the post-war period, the need arose to more rationally organise the space destined for the commercial transactions of direct producers, housed until that time in a series of temporary and undecorative canopies. Engineer Renato Bernardi (1916-1994), who had already designed another service building in the area, was commissioned to design the canopy.

The planning began in 1953; the file was approved in 1955. The building was built with some dimensional and structural variations without changing its formal appearance.
The canopy, rectangular in shape with the long side parallel to Via Fioravanti, consists of a series of continuous brick and reinforced concrete vaults resting on twenty-four pillars, a typical construction technique for this type of industrial building.
Mistakenly, the paternity of the work has been attributed over time to engineer Pier Luigi Nervi, who was not responsible for it, as attested by recent studies conducted by the University of Bologna (La pensilina ‘Nervi’ nell’ex Mercato Ortofrutticolo di Bologna.
