About the exhibition
We have created the permanent exhibition “Costellazioni Palladiane” that narrates the interesting story of the Palladian Basilica.
The project, carried out in collaboration with the Alquadrato Studio of Vicenza, was born from the idea of ”making the parallelepiped in the hall speak”, a functional architectural solution used has walls for the set-up of large exhibitions in the Basilica, an example of circular economy and a high-value structure aesthetic that respects the monumental environment in which it’s immersed.
The dark and harmonious surfaces of the “cube” stimulated attention and imagination, leading to an in-depth study of its further functionality: the communicative one.
The “cube” also becomes a communicative space, a contribution to enriching the visitor’s experience and enhancing the architectural context in which it is located.
The history and identity of the Basilica are told through a constellation of screens that rest on the dark surface of the “cube” and illuminate it with ten videos that present different narratives.
The Palladian space is respected, the silence is not interrupted, the visitor has the opportunity to enjoy what he sees inside the hall in the way and order that most inspire him.
The sky, represented by the cube, offers luminous constellations that deal with different topics grouped into themes: history, numbers, costs, the Basilica greatest exhibitions and events, its details and information about the city where it’s located.
