Salerno ferry terminal

Salerno (SA), Italy

marazzi stazione marittima di salerno 000.jpg

Salerno ferry terminal, one of the last great works by architect. Zaha Hadid, was conceived as “an oyster with a hard outer shell containing soft, fluid elements, with a ‘tempered’ roof to shield it from the harsh Mediterranean sun”. The terminal's curved roof is completely clad with a mix of custom slabs in Marazzi crystallized stoneware, in a variety of colours and a custom size, for an extremely tactile effect, shimmering in the hot sunlight.
