Abstract

The Museum of the Civilization of Europe and of the Mediterranean Area of Marseille (MuCEM) is one of the most important realization that reconfigured the nature of the French city. The museum, not only is a symbol of this urban refurbishment, but, more in general, represents a cultural rebirth that, precisely, it has been actualized during the nomination of Marseille as Capital City for the European culture in 2013. Dedicated to the Mediterranean culture, the museum has been conceived at the entrance of the Vieux Port, and it is connected, by means of a gangway, to the St. Jean’s Fort, a fortification of the XVII century, rich of history, built on the roman memories of the city. Five years from its grand opening, considered the great success of tourists, the MuCEM is investing also on the ancient fort to launch a ‘Center of interpretation of the Fort St. Jean’s history’ able to tell the complex history of this defensive structure, with a project of Franz Fischnaller. An exposition conceived according to that may be defined the cultural revolution of the contemporary museum. A re-foundation of the cultural fruition, able to demonstrate the demands of a widest audience for the touristic and cultural communication. And the project proposes itself in a useful, innovative and efficient way, both for the specialist, both for a common user. The MuCEM, in January 2016, announced a public tender for the realization of two huge models for the little halls of the Gallérie bas des Officiers.
