Restoration of the ex Cinema Induno, now Cinema Troisi

R.M. ARCHITETTO as Architects

The Cinema Troisi has a unique place in the European panorama. It occupies the EX GIL, which was previously the fascist centre for youth projected in 1933 by the architect Luigi Moretti, inaugurated in 1937. It is a re-opened cinema in the centre of Rome that seats 300 people, adopting avant-garde projection technology. It comprehends a reading room for 80 people open 24 hours a day every day of the year, a foyer-bar, a terrace and a multifunctional space for exhibitions and events.

The whole project was an elaborate work of restoration carried out in constant contact with the client under the supervision of the Rome Special Board of Archeology for Fine Arts and the Landscape.

A precious work of conservative restauration respecting the original project that after research in the archives and initial meticulous investigation brought to light original material, giving back its characteristics of how space had been conceived, in particular the circular symmetric use of space. This was possible by recreating the large iron window over the terrace that looks onto the inner court, giving a view of Luigi Moretti’s spiral staircase, which has become a symbol of 1900 architecture.

Care was taken over the materials and research carried out that revealed the external steps in travertino marble at the entrance, the squared flooring in bardiglio marble and the decorative stucco on the side of the beams in the multifunctional space dedicated to exhibitions and events. Innovative elements however were also skillfully introduced thanks to an attentive project, such as the furnishings in the foyer and the reading room, made to measure by artisans with the result that all the features are highlighted.

Restoration of the ex Cinema Induno

Forma&Cemento as Benches and Tables

Forma&Cemento is an Italian excellence in the craftsmanship of concrete. Our products are entirely handmade in cement by our expert artisans and are 100% Made in Italy. Since Forma&Cemento is an artisanal brand, we often have the chance to create custom pieces for the projects we believe in. This was the case with the re-opening of the Cinema Troisi.

Forma&Cemento was included in this project with the creation of tables and benches for the outdoor space of the Cinema Troisi. The goal was to create bespoke pieces that fit perfectly into the historical and architectural context of the place. Concrete and metal come together in these furnishing, underlining the sturdiness and lightens of the pieces. The elegant white metal frame holds a white concrete top handmade by our artisans in UHPC cement, a special high-performance cement mortar that guarantees durability and resistance.

Coherently with our mission, with this project we’ve taken once again the opportunity to show the beauty of our material, usually relegated to a mere structural use while through skilled craftsmanship, design and innovative techniques it becomes the protagonist of any product signed by Forma&Cemento.
