The aim of the project is to organize a big exhibition entitled “Four books and a pair of glasses” within the Palladian Basilica in Vicenza. The title refers to two great italian architects: Andrea Palladio and Carlo Scarpa. In a simpler way, the exhibition requires the representation of four Palladio’s books according to Scarpa’s optics. For this work it was necessary to interpret at the same time the main figures necessary for the realization of an exhibition: the curator, the designer and the graphic. So design has touched on the theme of installation, temporary installation, exhibition-show; but it was also necessary to be concerned with the graphic design, strategic communication of the exhibition, the dedicated website and merchandising.
