The Place

Behind The Place

The Project

“Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed.” – Lavoisier 1774. Today more than ever, we must learn from one of nature’s most important lessons. For this reason, we decided to reinvent an industrial building and give it a new purpose. We’ve taken this forgotten structure and transformed it into something new, something that was much needed here and now. The result is a large multifunctional space. The 700m2 of internal space contains the café, the shop, the rental fleet, the workshop, and the home of Aosta Valley Freeride where you can book guided tours and lessons. The 2000m2 external space contains our private parking with charging stations and is ready to welcome you to our large deck and green space in the city. The Place is powered entirely by electrical energy, supplied by a large array of solar panels on the roof. The industrial feel of the building has been enriched by inclusion of furniture from the longstanding ‘made in Italy’ designs of Alias. The entire project was managed by Zanetti Cantieri, with materials supplied by Noli Home.

Our Values

#passion #professionalism #adventure #sharing

We believe that passion and teamwork are behind every positive change. The Place is an international project involving lots of people, each with their own story, personality, and profession. We put a lot of value on each, because for us a project’s most important resource is the people involved.

Passion for bikes is the common thread that connects us. Some have searched for adventure on two wheels around the world, some have competed at the highest level, some have worked many years in other countries, some have built new and sustainable businesses. In the end, our different paths and experiences have led us here, and now we are focussing our energy into the desire to create something that was missing from Aosta.

Team

Originating from different places, we’ve followed paths that have led to experiences far from home. But at a certain point, our passion has brought us here to continue our stories together.

We are the team behind The Place!
