PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The National Museum of Italian Judaism and the Shoah (MEIS), in Ferrara, Italy, is the first museum to achieve the GBC Historic Building certification.

The deep sustainable retrofit was entirely supported by the Italian Ministry of Environmental and Cultural Heritage (MIBAC). The intervention includes the conversion and extension of a former prisons in Ferrara, which was built in 1912 and dismissed in 1992, in international exhibition, documentation and research centre. The detention building, featuring a typical gallery with cells arranged around a triple height central space. These spaces host the new exhibition area, educational laboratories and the Museum library.

The client, the Italian Ministry of Environmental and Cultural Heritage, was very keen in implementing a sustainability driven development and required the application of the GBC Historic Building protocol. The MIBAC awarded and valued the green rating scheme for the historic buildings. It represents a virtuous example to be imitated and applied to all the invaluable historic building stock. The development was awarded GBC Historic Building Gold rating and is now officially open to public.

SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY

The application of the GBC Historic Building protocol, represents a world novelty, certifies the level of environmental sustainability of the recovery and redevelopment of existing historic buildings with specific requirements that can take into account both aspects related to the scope of the historical value of the building, with the effectiveness of an intervention strategy aimed at conservation and valorization in comparison with the environmental impact requirements with the site, of internal environmental comfort, of high environmental performance materials, of energy efficiency of all the installed systems synthesized in a careful virtuous approach from design to construction.

The long-standing Italian technical and cultural tradition in the field of Architectural Restoration is compared and measured by the best international rating systems. Even Italy with its own companies, with its virtuous institutions such as the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, with its knowledge knows how to present itself in the world looking at its history projecting itself in the future as a protagonist.
