The National Museum of Reggio Calabria is one of the most prestigious archaeological museums in Italy. Opened to the public in 1954, it is known all over the world because it preserves the famous Riace Bronzes, as well as countless examples of the great civilizations that, still today, continue to give back to the land, in abundance.
Between 2009 and 2013, the Museum was the object of impressive rearrangement works that allowed a radical renovation of the old building designed in the 30s by Piacentini. Following that reorganization, a tender was launched for the design and implementation of the fittings and lighting, in which our firm participated in a group with the company Goppion SpA and the firm Guicciardini & Magni Architetti.
In the project submitted for the competition, improved solutions for the illumination of the bronzes and an innovative system for the illumination of the cases were proposed.
