The exhibition "I Labirinti del Cuore" is divided between two different venues: Palazzo Venezia with large and bright rooms, and Castel Sant'Angelo with its narrow and dark rooms. The visit is ideally a ‘unicum’ that follows a narrative centred on human relations. The recognition of the exhibition theme within the two venues was solved by the repetition of modular elements designed to gain intimacy in the palace of Palazzo Venezia, and to soften the defensive aspect of Castel Sant'Angelo. It is a flexible system, made of tripods and screens that are made from materials such as natural oak, wrought iron and lightweight and translucent fabric that gently absorb light and that allow the works to emerge. In the larger spaces, alcoves have been inserted that refer to the theme of intimacy. The alcoves create rooms within rooms. They are designed to display each object at the right height and with proper lighting, thanks to a system of shelves and supports that can be adapted to the different paintings. The volumes on display are contained in small windows, open and lit by a dedicated lighting, as well as objects and jewels belonging to Pope Barbo and Cardinal Grimani.
