After ten years of professional work in the field of architecture, lighting and exhibition design, and after 20 years of trips through different countries and cultures, the question of what is considered valuable to be displayed in a museum today grows urgent.
Contemporary and ancient art, archeology, design, graphics, and almost everything can be placed in a Museum. But, finally, what is a Museum? Which characteristics should a space have to be raised to the role of exhibition space? Are only internal spaces suitable for exhibitions, or also external ones? Are spatial dimensions important, or just proportions? And what about the scenography, the decoration, the taste that an exhibition space should have?
Rome is the most scenographic town in the world, in one sense, and for this reason it can be considered an ideal set for displaying exhibits and creating fantastic natural installations, diffused in the town in order to create an extended exhibition that connects the American Academy and a choice of significant other places in town.
