Stage: Under construction
The church of San Nicolao, now deconsecrated and used as an exhibition space, is the result of continuous stratifications traceable in the constructive complexity of the building and in the presence of frescoes belonging to different historical periods. The project involves the construction of a double triangular mezzanine and a staircase to access it. The intervention maintains the double height of the church and at the same time increases the exhibition area. Great attention is dedicated to the restoration of medieval and Renaissance plasterwork and frescoes, to the treatment of all existing surfaces and to the specific design of all display and lighting supports.
