A museographic project that allows the dialogue of the medieval wreck with the city wall of the same period, a dialogue between the architecture of the sea and the architecture of the city of the fourteenth century, and that rests on the gravel bed that “enters from the outside”, leaving the wreck as it was found in the 90s. The rest is a rough sea of 15 mm sheet metal, naval construction material, graphic support, drilled to accommodate showcases, creating gills that house lighting, folding like protective waves.
