The glistening façade of the "Museion museum of modern and contemporary art", which opened in 2008, is the eye-catcher of Bolzano, Italy. It captivates art and architecture lovers and boasts a sustainable energy concept. The architects at KSV (Krüger Schuberth Vandreike) were careful to ensure that the light intensity and indoor climate throughout the building met the special needs of the valuable museum exhibits. Moving frosted-glass louvres by Model System Italia guide sunlight into the museum during the day.
A total of 140 Picolo XL linear drives from elero ensure precise movement of the louvres. Ten elero Econom 2 linear drives are used to control the fresh air system. The powerful push-rod actuators move the louvres on the roof, an important part of the active climate-control façade.
