The Museo di Castelvecchio was developed on the bombed ruins of the Scaligery family's medieval castle in Verona. First commissioned to redesign the oldest section of the building, Scarpa was later asked to complete the museum. The work is a monument to Scarpa's sensibilties about time and place. According to critic Nory Miller he »achieved an extraor-dinary coexistence involving architecture of different centuries, including this one ... without the crutches of neutral glass linkages, uniform materials, or historical references ...« Indeed, the symbiosis between Scarpa's work and the surviving fabric is such that differences are hardly apparent.
