The covering of the Sopracenerina palace historic courtyard is aimed at a better use.
The supporting structure is provided with eight rays, obtained by a trellis structure composed of top, bottom and diagonal circular sectioned boom members, converging in a central core.
The secondary structure for the support of the glasses is placed over the main structure so as to ensure an appropriate transparency.
Laterally the supporting structure rests on some capitals that unload the stresses on the perimeter ring laying on the preexisting building.
