ABOUT US




Founded in 1987 under the aegis of the Autonomous Province of Trento, the Mart, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto operates through three separate sites: the museum’s main campus in Rovereto, an extensive architectural complex designed by Mario Botta and Giulio Andreolli and inaugurated in 2002; the Casa d'Arte Futurista Depero, also in Rovereto; and the Galleria Civica in Trento, which became part of the Mart in October 2013.
Born with a vocation as a contemporary agora, the Mart is a special museum in an exceptional context. Conceived more as a cultural hub than a traditional museum, its public spaces provide a forum for dialogue with the Civic Library, the Melotti Auditorium, the Zandonai Theatre, and the Rovereto campus of the University of Trento.
The Mart is a contemporary landmark set in the broader cultural landscape of Trentino. The absence of metropolitan development in the local area translates into high quality cultural and touristic attractions for all those who love nature, the outdoors, fitness and wellbeing, and who value uniqueness.
The Mart is keeper of an inestimable legacy that includes the greatest masterpieces of 20th-century Italian art. It features these and other notable works in dozens of exhibitions and projects every year made possible thanks to a full staff of curators, conservators, researchers, archivists, training professionals, science educators, and public relations specialists.
From its foundation until December 2011, the Mart was under the directorship of Gabriella Belli, who was succeeded in February 2012 by Cristiana Collu. In June 2015 the Board of Directors appointed Gianfranco Maraniello to the top spot, with a five-year mandate.

THE NUMBERS




Since its doors opened, over three million people have visited the Mart to enjoy its exceptional collections oriented toward culture buffs, families, and schools. With five thousand square metres of exhibition space and a collection of some twenty thousand works of art, the Rovereto museum offers a journey through the last one hundred fifty years of art history, with a particular focus on its dynamics in Italy.
The numerous masterpieces in the museum collections, the rare materials conserved in the archives, and the constant attention to the quality of its curatorial and technical activities have enabled the Mart to establish relationships with Italian and foreign museums and institutions in a constant exchange of loans and collaborations.
The Mart publishes an Annual Report with the purpose of explaining and measuring its strategies, resources, activities, and achievements in a clear, concise and accessible way.
