The fire prevention project of the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome, drawn up by Studio Santi, has obtained approval from the Provincial Command of the Fire Brigade
The National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome is one of the most important museums in Italy: in over 18,000 square meters it houses the most complete collection dedicated to Italian and foreign art from the 19th century to today.
For the purposes of fire prevention, this is an activity subject to the controls of the Fire Brigade, specifically identified in Annex I to Presidential Decree 151/2011 as “Activity 72 – Buildings subject to protection pursuant to Legislative Decree 22 January 2004, 42 intended to contain libraries and archives, museums, galleries, exhibitions and shows, as well as any other activity contained in this Annex “.
Studio Santi, consultant of the Gallery in the role of designer of the fire prevention project, thanks to its experience in fire prevention design in complex structures, has managed to apply the Technical Rule without having to resort to the institution of the derogation, rationalizing and optimizing the interventions to the maximum necessary adjustments.
The project, coordinated by Eng. Francesco Castellani (professional registered in the lists of the Ministry of the Interior, linkedin), has obtained a favorable opinion from the Provincial Command of the Fire Brigade of Rome and the National Gallery is planning the execution of the adaptation interventions to the fire regulations.
With expertise, experience and dedication it is therefore possible to accompany extraordinarily complex structures such as the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art along the tortuous path of adaptation to the fire regulations, aimed at obtaining the Fire Prevention Certificate, ensuring the highest level of fire safety to the inestimable artistic heritage and to the visitors and employees of the structure, the flagship of the Italian museums.
