Carbonia: A former accomodation workers N° 1 today, "House of automation" / Ex Albergo operaio N° 1 oggi "Casa della domotica"

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The accomodation workers were built between 1937 and January 1939 on a unique project in Trieste architect Gustavo Pulitzer-Finali that impressed with his work "[...] an architectural language rooted in the historical tradition of central European distribution arrangements with the adoption of very functional and rational. " The accomodation workers' N° 1, located on the final leg of the Constituent Street: "[...] replicates the basic configuration common to all: a planimetric shape" C "" organized around a large courtyard to which they look at the spacious porches upper and lateral parts of the floor. Able to accommodate 150 miners in rooms with a maximum of 6 beds and a minimum of 2, each group of 3 or 4 rooms was provided with services and had input that gave him in the halls and galleries. In the main body of the ground floor were "[...] the spaces for the collective functions": a large dining hall, kitchen, stores, storerooms for food, laundry and showers. With the crisis "Sulcis coal", due to competition from foreign coal, and the resulting layoffs, the hotel lost its original function in time. It became the headquarters from 1956 to 1994 of the Traffic Police. Remained a long time due to the dilapidated state of disrepair, was launched in 2005 the redevelopment project, which blend in with the original proposed "[...] a rigorous restoration" of the building for a new use in multifunctional nature and facing society. Currently home to the Multipurpose Center for Disabilities that focuses on the rehabilitation of the disabled and the improvement in their daily lives. The center is dedicated to the memory of Don Giovanni Diaz, a priest historic of Carbonia.

Gli alberghi operai furono costruiti tra il 1937 e il gennaio del 1939 su progetto unico dell’architetto triestino Gustavo Pulitzer-Finali che impresse alle sue opere “[…] un linguaggio architettonico radicato nella tradizione storica mitteleuropea con l’adozione di schemi distributivi decisamente funzionali e razionali”. L’albergo operaio n.1, ubicato nel tratto finale di via Costituente :“[…] replica la configurazione base comune a tutti: una conformazione planimetrica a “C” ”organizzata attorno a un grande cortile interno verso il quale guardano gli ampi porticati del piano superiore e dei corpi laterali del pianterreno. Capace di ospitare 150 minatori in camere con un massimo di 6 letti e un minimo di 2, ogni nucleo di 3 o 4 camere era munito di servizi e aveva ingresso a sé che dava negli androni e nei ballatoi. Nel corpo centrale del piano terreno si trovavano “[…] gli spazi per le funzioni collettive”: un ampia mensa, la cucina, i depositi, le dispense per i cibi, la lavanderia e le docce. Con la crisi del carbone Sulcis, dovuta alla concorrenza dei carboni esteri, e i conseguenti licenziamenti, l’albergo perdette nel tempo la sua funzione originaria. Divenne sede dal 1956 al 1994 della Polizia Stradale. Rimasto lungamente fatiscente a causa dello stato di abbandono, nel 2005 fu avviato il progetto di riqualificazione, che nel rispetto dell’architettura originaria, proponeva “[…] un rigoroso restauro conservativo” del fabbricato per una nuova destinazione d’uso a carattere polifunzionale e rivolta verso il sociale. Attualmente ospita il Centro Polivalente per la Disabilità che si occupa della riabilitazione dei disabili e del miglioramento delle loro condizioni quotidiane di vita. Il centro è dedicato alla memoria di Don Giovanni Diaz, sacerdote storico di Carbonia.
