Rosignano Marittimo (LI)

Exhibit “The necropolis of Pian dei Lupi.”

Design and production of the exhibit and its subsequent positioning in a museum


The abundant and rich necropolis of the late Etruscan epoch in the town of Pian dei Lupi – the inland part of Castigioncello— fortuitously discovered and then consequently excavated regularly, was the object of an archeological exhibition arranged in 2004 in the small center of Castelnuovo della Misericordia just a few kilometers from the archeological site.
An important element in the design was the idea that the exhibit then has to be positioned inside an exhibition path in the Archeological Museum of Rosignano Marittimo in cramped spaces, which the final design had to take into consideration for this difficult arrangement. For the temporary exhibition drywall structures allowed it to be adapted and articulated in the exhibition space, which was a single, large hall.
The exhibition created an opportunity to renew the Museum of Rosignano’s collection with a new type of showcase equipped with apposite tools for climate control and also bestowed an elegant and captivating illustrative arrangement.
