SAME DEUTZ-FAHR INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX IN TREVIGLIO (Bergamo)

University Thesis by Domenico Giacomini
Università degli Studi Guglielmo Marconi – Roma
a.a. 2009-2010 

Stabilimento e uffici Same - Same offices and plant, 1957

The objective of the university thesis was to examine the way the architecture of the SAME DEUTZ-FAHR industrial complex developed parallel to technological development, beginning with the buildings, offices and historic factory facilities and finishing with the current headquarters seen in their production and business context, a symbol of constant growth.

With this work, the author intends to shape the identity of an example of industrial architecture/archaeology still today fully operational in designs and pictures from days gone by, spotlighting and attributing value to the places where labour and production take place.

One important aspect was—and still is—the integration and the symbiosis with the territory of the City of Treviglio regarding employment and social issues, in addition to that regarding construction and city planning.
