“In 2010, the Chopin birth bicentenary year, Warsaw is to have a new-look Chopin Museum. An international competition for its design and exhibition concept has been won by the Milan-based Migliore & Servetto company.”
Grzegorz Michalski, the director of the National Chopin Institute, says it was an excellent choice: ‘The Italian concept is renowned for its incredible artistic taste and a feel for the specific conditions of the Ostrogski Castle on the one hand and of the needs of a monographic exhibition devoted to Chopin. I am delighted with a clarity of vision and the logic of the structural design.’
The winning project does away with the traditional ‘don’t touch the exhibits’ way of design. It is to be a multi-media and interactive arrangement, making profound use of all the latest in electronic technology.
‘While being a truly modern museum, it is addressed not only to the lovers of Chopin but to people of various level of interest in music and of all age groups, both 70- and 10-year olds. They will be able to view different exhibits, the ones they are interested in, at the same time; it’s a very interesting concept,’ said the minister of culture Bogdan Zdrojewski
