Abstract

Syracuse has evolved during the time following the implementation of collections and the transformations of the concept of the museum's role in society. Initially based on a nucleus composed of a few objects and some private collections, it was gradually enriched during a period of almost fifty years of intensive excavation and research undertaken by Paolo Orsi. Benefiting from the rigorous scientific requirements indicated by Luigi Bernabò Brea, the museum started a new life when it moved to Villa Landolina's area where a new structure was conceived by the architect Franco Minissi, a personality already well known in the museography's field. The building and the exhibit design were studied by Minissi to ensure the maximum flexibility. The idea was to create a museum in movement or an anti-museum able to adapt to the scientific progress and new archaeological discoveries. Conceived by its creator as a vital center for research and cultural promotion, the museum, thanks to virtual reality technologies, can today found new capabilities. Starting from a careful "reading" of the building and its environment, made by integrating surveying methods, this case study intends to contribute to the definition of a new approach to the museum visitor experiences through multimedia.
