Opened in 1984, the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art houses a collection of Arte Povera and works of art that tell the story of our time. In addition to collecting and exhibiting works of art, the Museum is a center for creativity, research, education and cultural development especially in the field of contemporary art, in a reflection on the present that passes through a dynamic relationship with the past. With its innovative exhibitions and radical artistic performances, the Museum of Contemporary Art has developed with the uniqueness of the Baroque building that houses it in mind. Designed in 1718 by Filippo Juvarra, the Castle is a constant source of inspiration for invited artists, stimulating the creation of new works designed specifically for the Museum’s Permanent Collection.From 2019, it also manages the Cerruti Collection, which brings together masterpieces of European art from the Middle Ages to the contemporary. The Rivoli Castle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
