The symmetrical plan of the existing building is re-interpreted by the new podium wich bends towards south to react to the different conditions of the surroundings and to underline his relation with largo Unità d’Italia. 
The transformation of the existing court in a winter garden establishes new relations between the different parts of the museum emphasizing the modernity of the spaces and the structural boldness of the existing architecture. 
The new wing on the west side, a large and continuous space with a major exhibition design flexibility, is integrated with the existing building embracing his side and giving continuity to the two urban elevations.
