Hi Everyone !
Today, I’m going to talk about a place: The “Silo”. The Silo is an old industrial building of the city of Marseille:
What is a Silo?
It’s a reservoir where we preserve and store farm produces. The “Silo” of Marseille is an old grain silo builds in 1924. It’s a rectangular building of more than 16 000 square meters.
During 2000s, it was fitted out in two different volumes:
- A space of offices
- An auditorium (Theater and concert)
The new “Silo” was inaugurated in September, 2011 by the mayor of the city Jean-Claude Gaudin:
The “Silo” is in the style of the Italian-style Theater. It’s constituted by several balconies around a central orchestra. The room offers a total capacity of 2050 places. His configuration varies according to the type of show.
For the followers of speaking of Marseille:
- Expression with “boucan”:
« Ma femme c’est un vrai boucan » means that his wife is “difficult to live”
