The causes of the disaster are not yet clear.

The fire took place yesterday, devastating the entire complex, originally used as a factory and then abandoned decades ago, to become a location for events and film sets , given its large, equipped and characteristic spaces.

More than one hundred firefighters did their utmost to put out the flames, using all the special means available. The area was manned, asking citizens to stay at home and not come near, but luckily there was no need for a real evacuation and no deaths or injuries were reported. The damage suffered by the property, however, is practically irreparable, even if it will be assessed calmly once everything has been secured and the causes of the disastrous event have been verified, which is not yet known whether it is intentional, negligent or accidental.
