LA CITTÀ DEL LEONE
Fondazione Brescia Musei
Santa Giulia Museum, Brescia
For Fondazione Brescia Musei we worked on the exhibition design for The City of the Lion. Brescia in the age of the communes and seigneuries, October 29 2022 / January 29 2023, at Santa Giulia Museum in Brescia.
The challenge was to include a series of different objects of various sizes with different preservation requirements in one tidy set-up solution: sculptures, paintings, detached frescos, letters and codices, historic volumes, coins and seals.
The focal point of this project is the strong sign of a timeline: a physical element used to anchor historical informations and to place artworks and artifacts orderly. Four carefully selected colors provide character to just as many thematic areas, with the goal of creating a stylish mood defined by the choice of colors, materials and finishes.
We strongly believe that inside museum spaces great attention to the complete realization of the exhibition itinerary – as envisioned by curators and scientific Committees – could and should be integrated in a comfortable and pleasant interior environment, often inspired by our experience with residential and retail projects and as set designers for events.
