Ravenna – Former O.N.F.A. Summer Camp

Built in the 50s, the real estate complex is situated in a seaside resort called Punta Marina Terme, in the municipality of Ravenna. The building, called “Ex Colonia O.N.F.A”., was used as a seaside summer camp for the children of civil pilots and had 100 beds. Thanks to its location, near the seaside and the pinewood of Punta Marina, the complex is well suited to tourist accommodation.

The former O.N.F.A. Summer Camp is made up of a flat, irregularly shaped plot of land of about 3.900 sqm, with a main front running parallel to the coastline and an average breadth of 60 m. It is bordered mostly by wire netting, specifically on the side of the pinewood and of a near military compound, and to a lesser extent by a boundary wall, on the side of Piazza Saffi. The building complex consists of two adjacent blocks, here referred to as A and B, having different structural typologies:

– block A, which covers an area of approximately 246 sqm, develops partly on three levels and partly on four levels above the ground, with a maximum height of 14.40 m

– block B has a reinforced concrete structure and an L-shaped plan made up by a bigger rectangle measuring 13,80 x 10,90 m and a smaller rectangle on the back measuring 9,60 x 10,00 m. It develops on three levels above the ground and is equipped with an attic crawl space.

The real estate is situated in the Regional County Seat Ravenna (159.115 inhabitants), in a district of 394,395 inhabitants, in a seaside resort called Punta Marina Terme, at a about 11 km from the city center and the port. This area is part of the so-called Lidi Sud di Ravenna, a set of seaside locations including Marina di Ravenna, Lido Adriano, Lido di Dante, Lido di Classe e Lido di Savio. The thermal baths by the sea and the wide, well-equipped sandy beaches make this locality especially appealing for young people and families in search of a relaxing and wellness holiday.

Completely surrounded by the pinewood, the complex is part of the Delta del Po Regional Park with its cycle paths and walking and trekking trails. The former O.N.F.A. Summer Camp is very close to the sandy shore and in a strategic position which makes this area a destination of great touristic and commercial interest. The real estate is just 37 km away from the toll booth “Cesena Nord” of the highway A-14 “Adriatica” and about 10 km from the railway station which provides connections with the cities of Pesaro, Rimini, Bologna and Ferrara. Bologna international airport “Guglielmo Marconi” is about 90 km away. The Municipality of Ravenna, through the Town Council Resolution n 170784/112 dated 25/9/2018, has varied the Urban Real Estate Regulation with a specific act called “Variante RUE e RUE Piano dell’Arenile, beni demaniali e comunali”, published on the regional official gazette BURERT n 326 dated 17/10/2018, with the particular intent of simplifying the implementation procedures and broadening the permitted uses, now including also tourism and hospitality and private services.
