Renovation of the Royal Palace new wing in Torino, to house the Savoy Gallery (2004-2014)

The transfer of Savoy Gallery in Royal Palace New Wing is an important intervention to promote the history of Italian art and
architecture. With the transfer of Savoy Gallery the final configuration of the Royal Museum system is realized, providing a perfect cohesion between the paintings and their natural, original place.
Within the museum circuit, the Savoy Gallery becomes the centerpiece of the Royal Museums.
The adopted museological criteria are in line with the architectural structure of the New Wing, in order to enhance a tailor made flexible museum space. The exhibition system has been conceived as an independent layer, overlapped to the walls in a flexible and reversible way: movable panels, supporting paintings, can slide hanging from a guide, in a totally flexible way.
Architecture and exhibition dialogue and enhance each other without one prevails over the other.
