Salerno ferry terminal
Salerno (SA) Italy
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 mixture of Marazzi SistemA crystallised stoneware slabs, in a variety of colours and a custom size, for an extremely tactile effect, shimmering in the hot sunlight. SistemA is a highly technical product manufactured using an exclusive technology patented by Marazzi in 2010, ideal for designing heavily-used public and commercial locations, interiors and exteriors, and ventilated walls.
