Galleria Salice GSC

Castasegna - 2012

Galleria Salice GSC


The village of Castasegna is located on the border with Italy. Despite it is situated at 686 metres, it has a typical Mediterranean climate.

The stone-paved main street is lined with magnificent 17th century houses. Away from the main road, on the narrow paths and alleys, you can always catch a glimpse of the rural past that is still intact today. In the village of 200 people, in the shade of the largest chestnut grove in Europe, various important scientific, artistic and cultural-historical characters met and shared ideas.

Here, along the main street, two adjoining stables were constructed back in time and have not been used for years. Thus, it has been decided to convert them into a small gallery in which changing exhibitions of contemporary art could take place.

On the upper floor (hay barn), with a room height of almost 5 m, there is the exhibition hall, whose walls and ceiling were plastered entirely in white. The floor was made with existing wooden boards that were re-sanded. On the ground floor, a former cowshed that was ultimately used as a garage, has been turned into a common room which is connected to the upper floor by a spiral staircase.
