PIZZAROTTI SA (80%) with Impresa Pizzarotti & C. s.p.a. (20%) wins the renovation of “La Casa d’Italia in Zurich”

Another success for PIZZAROTTI SA (80%) that with Impresa Pizzarotti & C. s.p.a. (20%) won the renovation of “La Casa d’Italia di Zurich”, commissioned by the Consulate General of Italy in Zurich.

The plan of the works of ‘La Casa d’Italia’, building registered in the inventory of objects to be protected of municipal importance, both from the artistic and historical-cultural point of view, as well as in the federal inventory of Swiss settlements to be protected (ISOS)provides for the renovation, restoration and functional and plant adaptation of the building.

Commissioned by the Italian colony in 1932, it was first used as an asylum and orphanage and later as an Italian language school and cultural centre. In 1935, with Mussolini the building became the property of the Italian State and was converted by the Italian Consulate General into the “House of Italy”.
