LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Bellarmine University is breaking ground on a $25 million building project inspired by Italian architecture.

The school is breaking ground on its new Centro building project on Tuesday in front of Horrigan Hall, the school’s main administration building.

It will add a new three-story, curving building in front of the hall and connect the two buildings at both ends.

Horrigan Hall would largely be hidden behind the new Centro building and would be redone to give its exterior much the same look as Centro.

The Courier-Journal reports (https://cjky.it/1BZ979M ) the project is inspired by Tuscan architecture and is intended to reflect efforts to give Bellarmine the appearance of an Italian hillside town.

Horrigan Hall was constructed in the 1950s.
