The slaughterhouse was considered to be among the most important of industrial buildings, because of its modernity and the simplicity of its structure and internal organisation. More or less it was a kind of factory, well supplied with technical equipment to work in a production line.

Today, the area is being revitalized and dedicated to a cultural center with exhibitions, rehearsal rooms  for musicians and to the new museum of contemporary art.
