Atelier Rooms Pistoia Musei
The project envisages the fitting out of the two rooms destined to host the Atelier of Palazzo Buontalenti, the space dedicated to the educational activities of Pistoia Musei. The multifunctional rooms, in addition to educational workshops, can host the function of a small civic centre to host meetings and activities in the heart of the city, in continuity with the exhibition spaces of Palazzo Buontalenti, Palazzo de’ Rossi and the offices of Fondazione Caript.
In the two rooms, the identity of the project is entrusted to the insertion of colour, a green that continuously covers the new horizontal and vertical surfaces, the new resin flooring, the metal mesh fittings, the doorways and doors. Irregular luminous rings, suspended just below the line of the capitals on which the elegant historic vaults are set, give light to the rooms in a diffuse manner. In the secondary rooms, used for storage and cleaning of art materials as well as for toilets, the yellow colouring of the resin, lime tonachino and tiles acts as a warm chromatic counterpoint to the main rooms.
