Arper for the project of the City of Treviso, Bailo 2021
Arper supports the project for the completion of the Museo Bailo in Treviso, which contains the permanent civic collection of works by Arturo Martini and of artists who were his contemporaries in the school of Treviso. By 2021 the city will thus have a complete museum center on the Novecento.
The museum is located in a Renaissance building once used as a monastery. It was opened in 2015 after extensive renovation, in particular of the facade and the 16th-century cloister, in a project by Studiomas architetti.
The Padua-based studio has now completed the plan of conservative restoration and expansion of the structure, intervening in the late 19th-century cloister and the spaces of the upper level. The architect Marco Rapposelli explains: “doubling the exhibit area, the museum itinerary will be extended, also with new public services like a cafe.”
The project of the City of Treviso Bailo 2021 is an example of public-private cooperation and intelligent cultural patronage. Claudio Feltrin, president of Arper, comments: “We wanted to demonstrate that doing business does not only mean concentrating on the functioning and management of a company, but also on producing wealth that brings benefits for the territorial context. Though Arper exports 93% of its production, it is a company with strong ties to the territory. Treviso represents a precious asset which we have a moral duty to protect and enhance. Museo Bailo is an important part of this process.”
