It is an ongoing mission of the FoB to enhance visitor experiences at the Bargello. And to achieve this, there is a serious need to help finance the modernisation and reinstallation of the collections throughout the museum. Such improvements will include;
Updated Climate Control
Specifically in areas that require it most; including the ivory room, and within certain display cases that house important wax models, or other temperature sensitive materials.
Reinstallation of the Collections
The re installation of various rooms so that there is a more cohesive and comprehensive arrangement of the sculpture and works of art. This area of FoB support would include the introduction of interactive information screens for certain objects, and fresh wall plaques and didactics throughout each room of the museum. Importantly too, is the purchase of modern display cases which would in themselves improve greatly the current visitor experience in viewing the objects.
of the Storage Facility
The current onsite storage facility at the Bargello is a fascinating treasure house, but in critical need of climate control and reorganisation. Beyond the natural benefits of conservation in addressing this goal, the FoB would be instrumental in facilitating a sensible rotation of objects from storage to display and back again. Considering that many of the extraordinary objects within the Bargello storage have never been exhibited, this would be an exciting opportunity for scholarly interests as well as a fascinating subject for a future exhibition.
