This building used to be a quite big furniture mall and it has been constructed in Desio during the ’60s. Desio sits in the Brianza area, which is well known for its furniture industry and it’s a very productive territory, one of the richest part of Italy.
Unfortunately this building didn’t meet this success, its business gradually reduced over the years and eventually ended, leaving the “Palazzo dell’Arrendamento” (in italian means “furniture building”) abandoned to his destiny. Based on this article (in italian), the building has been used as a landfill at least from 2004, further worsening the possibility for a renovation: it has been object of many reports and complaints, but nothing seems to happen, at least since today!
The building it’s really devastated and it seems for me quite impossible to let it became something “nice”, even with a big investment!! May be it should be preserved for its ugliness, which sometimes (and this is the case!) it’s so strong and deep to eventually become beauty!
And you? What would you do in this place?
