In 2011, the Dante Alighieri Society organized an exhibition to celebrate its role in the diffusion of culture and Italian language since 1889. The first exhibition space was the cloister of its historical headquarters.
The place, a cloister of a palace of the “Florentine cinquecento” covered by frescos of great importance, would host various activities, debates, and meetings, along with the display of some historical objects.
The uniqueness of the place qualities: entrance to the building, circulation, views to the frescos and zenith lighting, strongly defined the three exhibition areas required by the society. Different typologies were proposed, simultaneously allowing the development of the Association’s activities as well as the exhibitions and the access to the building.
