The wooden model

modello ligneo

The wooden 3D model of Palazzo Farnese is displayed in the second room of the museum ground floor, where there are some panels describing the story of the project, the clients and the architect. The 1:50 scale model, carried out by the architect Enrico Bergonzoni, shows what the palace would have been like if it had been completed according to Vignola’s project. The reconstruction was based on 8 drawings carried out by Giacinto Vignola to illustrate his father’s project and were sent in 1561 to the Duchess for approval; they are currently kept in Parma State Archives.
