In order to accommodate a wider audience, the Ethnological Museum’s direction has commissioned the design study to implement a radical renovation of the museum spaces, improving the circulation path, while respecting the original plan of the architect Passarelli. During the museum visit, reaching this room, the hall provides a settled circulation for the visitor: at the entrance, a small temporary exhibition followed by a permanent one within a double ceiling height. The natural light, passing from the patio, allows the video projection to act as a guide and to hide the archives walls.
