Exhibition design and graphic design for the installation2002
The Certosa Museum has its headquarters in Palazzo Ducale, traditionally the summer residence of the Visconti and Sforza family dynasties, which contains works of art from the monastic complex and those connected to it. The recently remodeled gypsotheque on the ground floor of the gallery holds more than 200 casts of various sizes and is a remarkable example of this work in the Italian panorama.
The first floor has maintained its historical arrangement by Luca Beltrami, the founder of the museum. There are Bambaia high reliefs, Giovanni Antonio Amadeo and Antonio Mantegazza sculptures, polychrome stone sculptures and works of art by Lombard artists from the second half of the 15th century, as well as mural paintings from the 18th century taken from their original place and moved to boards.
The exhibition design project has made for an attentive analysis of preventative conservation factors, particularly those relative to the support of the works, for the most part reproduction in gypsum of the original marble sculptures of the Certosa. The study of the graphic design was aimed to complete the fragments of the portions of structural elements (stipites, capitals, etc.) for an improved vision of the original setting.
