On 03 May 2019, the TORRE DELL’ANTICO CASTELLO (called also “Torre Dell’Orologio”) located in Ferretto Square in Mestre (VE) opened to the public. This museum aims at offering an opportunity to learn and deepen the knowledge of the history of the city as well as to better understand its contemporary dimension. For this project, Remor Srl produced and installed the internal set-up for the exhibitions and two corten totems to located outside the main entrance.
The internal set-up project includes eleven panels used to display some historical and contemporary elements to offer the visitors a first approach to the city’s history.
- The panels are made in Smart-X, decorated by digital printings and then cut and edged to have the proper finishing, suited to the environment in which they are located.
- The challenge for this project was developing the standing structure for the panels. Given that the museum is located in a building of historical significance, we could not drill the tower’s walls made of exposed stones. Thus, we decided to use American truss in aluminum varnished corten, lodging them between the two walls. In this way, there was not the need to make holes on partitions.
This solution guaranteed the right solidity and it was an optimal solution to hang artworks and explanatory panels.
We also produced two totems to be located at the entrance. These totems are suitable for an outdoor usage as they can resist atmospheric agents and bad weather.
The totems were produced using thick steel sheets and then varnished them with corten finishing. This type of production and coating recalls the same style developed in the internal set-up.
The front side of these products is made in a double tempered and laminated glass then decorated by reverse digital printings. As one of the totems is used mainly to highlight upcoming events, the façade has a customized case to hold flyers, allowing an easy and fast communication.
All these products were entirely designed, produced and installed at Torre Civica di Mestre by us.
We are honored we had the privilege to be part in this project.
