Verona opened my eyes to the architectural wonders that weave seamlessly into the city's rich cultural fabric. The historic heart of Verona, with its well-preserved Roman and medieval structures, offered a captivating journey through time. Standing in the grandeur of the Arena di Verona, a Roman amphitheater that still hosts spectacular performances, I marveled at the enduring engineering brilliance of the ancient world. The medieval charm unfolded in the cobblestone streets flanked by elegant palaces and charming squares. Exploring the intricate details of the Scaliger Tombs and the imposing Castelvecchio, I couldn't help but appreciate the Gothic and Renaissance influences that have left an indelible mark on Verona's skyline. Verona's architecture, a synthesis of various historical periods, transformed the journey into an immersive exploration of art, history, and the enduring spirit of this enchanting Italian city.

 Filippo Bricolo's project at the Castelvecchio Museum builds upon Carlo Scarpa's 1964 restoration, focusing on the previously unfinished central part of the East Wing. A key addition is the Mosaic Room, designed to exhibit a second-century AD Roman pavement fragment. The space also functions as an entrance to Sala Boggian, connecting to the main courtyard through a distinct iron panel. This panel, marked with strategic incisions and Scarpa's fonts, guides visitors to both the Mosaic Room and Sala Boggian. The renovation revitalizes the connecting room, repurposing a section for lavatories concealed by burned pitch-pine paneling, echoing Scarpa's materials. The project harmoniously blends historical restoration with contemporary design, paying homage to Scarpa's legacy while enhancing the museum's functionality and aesthetic coherence
