MART Museum


The big steel and glass dome.

The central access to the museum, auditorium and library pass through the great round square with the fountain in the middle and it is connected to Corso Bettini through a path in between two historical buildings such as Palazzo del Grano and Palazzo Alberti. The cut-off pyramid-shaped steel and glass dome is the peculiar roof covering of the structure and it is also what identifies the whole building. Particular attention should be focused on top to the opening connected with the central ring, in axle with the fountain and to the missing of one radial truss, in axle with the entree to the square purposely designed to allow a gradual passing from the outside toward the square and the showing rooms.
