+ DESCRIPTION

How to do something well with little money? This project is an answer to that question.
The exhibition reunites the collection of art and architecture which belonged to the Farnese family and placed it on display in the recently restored Ducal Palace in Colorno.
The design of the exhibition is minimal; ample space is left to the perception of the rooms of the palace in order to give unity to the exhibition by using a uniform design for the stands holding the works and a careful use of light to bring them out.
(Ermanno Ranzani)
