The Porta di Roma shopping center is placed within the master plan for the Bufalotta district, that foresees a new neighborhood integrated within the agrarian landscape and served by a boulevard that crosses the existing hills of the site with a sensuous, curvilinear path. The shopping center complex with the hotel tower is thought as a "walled city" in local Tufo stone, characterized by a terraced base in heavy prefabricated concrete panels painted in ochre color that support a metal crowning marked by huge aluminum clad skylights. The center is a single megastructure that includes two parking levels and two floors with commercial galleries connected by multi-leveled indoor squares lit from above. A system of three outdoor squares links this main block with the two structures of Leroy Merlin and Ikea, this one marked by its blue metal cladding and cantilevered screens that mark the main entrances.
