The internal courtyards
In our project, we have strongly characterized the two courtyards. We want these 2 open-air areas to have a function
greater than they have now. We believe that the elevation of the sediment line (an element that allows ventilation to the underground rooms)
is a strongly negative element, which cuts the usable space into 2 disconnected and separate parts. In the East courtyard we propose the construction / assembly of
a raised wooden square (similar to the one found in the nearby Jazz Club in Piazza Valdo Fusi), with the aim of unifying the two separate banks and
use the differences in heights such as parking steps, pitches for the Bistrot / cafeteria dehors, stage and green flower beds. This structure will be a "constructed" element
permanent but easily removable by disassembling the individual parts.
Inside the two courtyards there are 2 new elements: one for the Bistrot and one for Didactics. These volumes are ideally and voluntarily conceived with
different materials and appearance compared to the baroque facades. They are raised from the ground, they never intersect with the structure of the building. They are volumes with dimensions
parallelepiped and transparent materials. There is the intention to have the maximum brightness inside them and to allow the maximum relationship with the outside and the context.
The Bistrot will be present in the EAST courtyard. This space will be open all day, from morning to 7.00 for breakfast in the evening until 20.00.
For the evenings in which night events will be organized, it will also remain open until late in the evening. In addition to its refreshment function, it will represent a filter with the city,
it will facilitate the approach of people to the reality and atmosphere of the Museum, it will be a place that will complete the courtyard where events, concerts and theatrical performances can take place.
In the WEST courtyard, on the other hand, the teaching room will be placed. We envision the use of this new volume as a teaching room, video room and conference room. The floor dimension
it will be similar to that of the parallel sleeve and entry will be allowed through the use of some inclined ramps.
