The art of logistics
At its Somaglia site in Italy, Ceva Logistics turned a logistics park into an open-air, urban art gallery. As part of the Prologis Parklife initiative, eight internationally Italian urban artists used 40,000 sqm of building facades and water tanks as canvases to create works of art. Starting in September, guided tours will be open to the public, which can be booked free of charge.
The Parklife programme is intended to transform the logistics site into a small urban centre. Green spaces will be redeveloped to include larger, more diverse trees and perennial flowerbeds, with varying colours to create a natural dialogue with the works of art in the logistics park. The project is expected to be completed by September 2021. (sh)
