The Presidents’ Hall exhibition area is located along the central corridor of the main floor of the historical headquarter of the Generali Group at Trieste. A multifunctional platform emphasizes the portion of space dedicated to the installation of the Presidents’ Hall and at the same time it gives a scenic importance to the entire space.

The installation concept is based on the interaction of the two separate functional areas: one dedicated to the busts’ exhibition and one dedicated to information. The marble busts are placed in semicircle while the didactical point is located in the existing boiserie in the form of a touch screen. The digital project contains the biographies of the Generali’s Presidents who guided the Group and information related to the sculptors.

The lighting design of the Presidents’ Hall integrates the existing natural and artificial lighting system with the addition of two groups of spotlights placed on the high part of the opposite wall in order to have proper light for the busts in the Presidents Hall and for the rest of the area.

A lighting line is placed at the deck’s base to give a sense of lightness to the entire installation.
