The prestigious Oximoro Ermitage wooden floor was chosen for the restoration of the Palazzo del Podestà in Faenza, in the province of Ravenna.
As of Thursday 1 September, the citizens of Faenza have regained possession of the Sala dell'Arengo of the Palazzo del Podestà, which had been closed to the public for more than 40 years.
In the square, in the heart of Faenza's historical centre, the Palazzo Comunale, known by everyone as the Palazzo del Podestà, has come back to life, the subject of a lengthy redevelopment operation, in which our customer Casa+ was also involved, contributing to the rebirth of the building that boasts Romanesque origins.
For the restoration, the municipality wanted the materials and aesthetic impact of the original environment to be respected, so Casa+ proposed Oximoro Ermitage as the floor covering for the Sala dell'Arengo, a place that was created for assemblies and that over time has been a theatre, a warehouse and even a gymnasium and that today returns to its ancient origin of use with the possibility of accommodating up to 360 people during exhibitions.
The Ermitage floor reflects the ancient origins of the place, a parquet of Italian construction and finish, in three-layer multi-width oak, with a strong scenic impact and a rustic appearance. The finish with natural pigments, combined with the brushed surface finish, give this floor an authentic, lived-in style, perfect for recalling the medieval origins of the Palazzo del Podestà.
