Rethinking the exhibition itinerary, improving conservation methods and enhancing the works on display: this was the aim of the complete renovation of the Sala degli Avori inside the Museo Nazionale del Bargello, which alone covers a time span of fifteen centuries, from rare Etruscan and Roman objects to 19th century artefacts. In terms of prestige and number of pieces displayed, this is undoubtedly a collection that challenges some of the great European museums, such as the South Kensington Museum in London and the Musée de Cluny in Paris.
