Teatro Auditorium Ex-Cinema Radar

The theatre/auditorium in the former “Cinema Radar” and Hotel Savoia annex in Monopoli is finally complete.

The purpose of the restoration and change in function project, which was commissioned by the local Municipal Authority, is to provide the city with a new home for the Nino Rota Conservatory. The spaces have been reconfigured, although without altering the original structure, for a variety of uses. It will be an auditorium for artistic performances and teaching purposes of the Conservatory, but also for use by the local citizens and area, with rooms for teaching, musical performances and music workshops for the local people.

Collaboration between Aresline and Decima has turned the theatre/auditorium into a multi-purpose space suited to the various different uses. Installation of the InFloorSystem, combined with the V9.Syncron integrated foldaway seats by Aresline, allows reconfiguration from a completely empty hall with a flat floor into an auditorium or conference room with seats in just a few minutes. Each step of the stage has two InFloorSystem modules with a variable number of seats, depending on width. The two modules of each step are separated from the central corridor and the side corridors.

The solid partnership between the two companies has led to engineering of an integrated and highly technical product.

The V9.Syncron​​​​​​​ seats have a synchronised back which is raised when the seat is lowered. This technical detail has created an extremely compact seat when closed, with a space between rows of 95cm, without penalising the ergonomics of the seat, which is very comfortable. The perfect solution for the InFloorSystem. Four versions of the V9.Syncron seat have been installed in the hall, chosen according to their position and function: two types with synchronised back (level with the arm-rest when closed) which allow installation on InFloorSystem in the moveable version for the front rows of the stage, arranged in the orchestra pit, and in the synchronised version for the mobile stage; two types with non-synchronised back (also high when seat is closed) in the version for the differently abled in the central corridor and in the standard version for the stepped floors and gallery.



  • CDN project in collaboration with Decima.
  • A solid partnership that has allowed engineering of an integrated and highly technical product.
  • Complete reconfiguration of spaces for multi-purpose use of the room.
  • Installation of V9.Syncron seats with InFloorSystem: the room is transformed from completely empty with a flat floor to an auditorium with seats on stepped platforms.

Teamwork is the key!


Group design, where the skills and experience of leading companies in their sector come together, is the key to success in facing and overcoming the most difficult challenges. This close and lengthy collaboration is essential in engineering custom solutions to suit the customer’s needs. Contract Design Network has been pursuing this objective for over 10 years and has numerous successes to show for it. This day-to-day collaboration results in both design opportunities and new solutions, which are brought to market and industrialised.
