The project is developed like an “open museum” made of different theme paths the visitors may choose to follow. The visitor may freely explore the creative itinerary of Chopin as composer and pianist, at the same time receiving guidance in his discovery of the most important places and events which have characterized his life.

The project dialogues with, and takes inspiration from, a confrontation with the exhibition rooms of the Ostrogski Palace, in order to underscore the peculiarities of the individual rooms without altering their image and historical value. The project itself, although it dialogues with the architectural and structural elements of the Palace, goes along with the creative development of the contents defining a multilayer and multimodal message, addressed to different audience/public. Taking into account the rules and limits of perception and employing new media in a way reflecting current best practice it allows the visitor a unique freely use (adults, kids, young people, experts, starters …).

The need to exhibit with clarity and immediacy different thematic areas determined the development of different exhibition structures which comprise a system of emotional landscaped and soundscapes capable of capturing the attention and curiosity of the visitors by stimulating all their senses.

The interactive multimedia systems have been designed as an instrument by means of which the visitors may study the contents of the different rooms in depth, thus allowing them to choose how and when to read them. This permits the connection between music, objects and information.

The proximity sensor system (ultra-red or ultrasound) activates not only screens but scenarios. Timing systems of light, audio and video revealed them-self to the visitors, opening the view of an original score, a Chopin’s piano along with dynamic projections or interactive maps.

The use of RFID technology allows customization of the audio-visual content, which is set on four levels: basic, advanced, for children and for the visually impaired. Each level is presented in eight languages. An omnipresent “soundscape” which is based on its own scenario is present.
