inside the building, with straight flights of

stairs leading to each floor. But that’s not all.

Through the double windows on the east and

62 ft) it is possible to see the courtyard and

the surrounding hills. Each large window is

composed of a series of 35” x 98” modules

connected by the stone of the casing. The

structural glazing employed here makes

it possible to maintain the same form and

materials as the external facade.

The design of the auditorium is also different.

The light here is managed according to the

function of the various areas (public areas,

meeting area or closing to the outside). A blade

of sunlight cuts the curving walls and leads

the visitor inside the hall to a position where it

is possible to see the house of the Pope. Here,

we can find a component with special anti-UV

and air-tight glass, in order to avoid overexposition

to sunlight and water infiltrations

from above. The same insulation technology

was used for the other components, protecting

This technology allows for a more effective

thermal insulation and protects the exhibition

from solar radiations.

The systems METRA Polidera-Sky 50 and NC

depth. Between the supporting element and

the external section, we can find an insulating

component with low thermal conductivity. The

facade incorporates 2 inch wide aluminium

backlining, pressure-mounted on the

containing section of the panelling.

The structures used for windows and glass

doors are aligned to the exterior, with a 2/2.3

inch deep fixed frame and a 2.3/2.7 inch deep

rebated opening leaf. The structures used for

the doors are aligned with both the exterior

and the interior, employing 2/2.3 inch deep

stop seals both on the inside and the outside.

All doors and windows are insulated with

a double-glazing composed of an external
