The new Museum of the Twentieth Century (Museo Novecento), dedicated to Italian art of the twentieth century, is housed in the old Hospital of San Paolo in Piazza Santa Maria Novella in Florence, Italy. Avatar Architettura was responsible for the museographic and exhibition design of the Museo Novecento. The project defines the museum setting as a suspended space. Visitors come upon it through lively devices for spatial meditation which, placed at the start of the exhibition path, on the first floor of the cloister, introduce them to contemporary experiences and artistic research. While the entrance is characterized by a clearly recognizable architectural solution, Avatar Architettura created the rest of the path as a sort of “suspended space.” More neutral, but physically present and material, the setup of the rooms starts with the metallic floor and continues in the panels that emerge from the walls in some of the rooms.
