The Diocesan Museum, built inside the sumptuous Renaissance spaces of the lower Church of the Cathedral of Turin, in proximity to the city’s art and museum district, has its entrance in Piazza San Giovanni, next to the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. The layout of the Diocesan Museum of Turin is designed to effectively enhance the exhibits highlighting their meaning and original use. The first requirement paid to the design of the museum was to preserve its historical value being a museum as of itself. The respect of this framework has resulted in the full preservation of the architectural and archaeological legacy, with interventions kept to a minimum, using simple shapes and reversible and distinguishable materials. More information on: museodiocesanotorino.it
