Casina Farnese: an opportunity for a museum exhibition
Casina Farnese was built by the Farnese family in the gardens of the Orti Farnesiani, on the Palatine Hill: it is a small building that is divided into two floors, with loggias entirely painted. In 2012 it began an intervention for the restoration. After the restoration, it was carried out the project for the new internal spiral staircase in cast iron and corten. Then, in order to protect the intervention in the painted loggias, we projected the transparent crystals, so that they did not close the loggias hermetically and they were equipped with filters to prevent excessive heating. At the same time, we carried out the Casina museum project, that is: a series of projections on a glass case and vertical supports and also the creation of “temporal telescopes”, finally a structural glass staircase to connect the exterior directly with the second level loggia.
