Fradiavolo restaurant in Turin

The object of this project, FRADIAVOLO restaurant, is located in Piazza Gran Madre di Dio (Via Ferdinando Bonsignore corner), in the portion of the square downstream of the ancient village of Po, included in the limit of the first boundary of the city of Turin. The building was built to house the canonical house of the parish of the Great Mother of God.

The building, built in 1786, is the work of the architect Ferdinando Bonsignore, and  is it part of an eclectic scene dating back to the post-restoration period. This development phase of the city of Turin, sees the expansion of bourgeois housing and income houses, which are located beyond the Po where small-scale activities once were located. The local FRADIAVOLO is on the ground floor of the building of the canonical house where an office of the Dazio was located and then a Post office. The original windows and doors were kept under the supervision of the architectural superintendence.

The main intervention was to change the destination of the premises as soon as you enter a unique area between the kitchen and the tables of the restaurant through the demolition of an internal partition. Other interventions were those of recovering the walls in stone and bricks, leaving them exposed while maintaining the original plasters. The floors have been replaced with black and white tiles with vintage furnishings recovered around Italy. Vintage blinds, a piano on the walls, have been nailed to the ceiling.
