MUSEO-CENTRO STUDI ALFREDO D’ANDRADE / ALFREDO D’ANDRADE MUSEUM AND STUDY CENTRE
Pavone Canavese (Turin), Fondazione Alfredo d'Andrade, 2003
- Data Sheet
Designed for the museum dedicated to Alfredo d’Andrade, an architect and restorer from the late nineteenth century, this exhibition includes four installations exploring the themes of restoration, archiving, travelling, and the relationships between d’Andrade and his contemporaries.
The first installation is made of four interactive bookrests, each equipped with a video presenting restoration sketches by d’Andrade for Palazzo di San Giorgio (Genoa), the fortifications in Aosta, the Sacra di San Michele in the Susa Valley, and for the castle of Pavone Canavese.
The second installation is about d’Andrade’s activity as a collector and a cataloguer of documentary material. A custom-made archival cabinet is set in the middle of the room; you can enjoy the projections by opening its drawers.
The third installation takes you into the places of d’Andrade’s life and work. In his travels, he discovered, studied and assessed building and decorative details. At the centre of the room, a walkable deck shows the key sites of his work as a painter and restorer through the Peutingerian Table, a map he used for reference, and three videos that animate its cities.
The fourth installation explores d’Andrade’s relationship with the cultural protagonists of his time thanks to hanging frames, which enclose projections of paintings and drawings.
The exhibition path was presented as a project through an installation within the museum.
