HISTORY




The Mart Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto is one of the most important museums in Europe. Founded in 1987 under the aegis of the Autonomous Province of Trento, the Mart now operates through three separate sites: the museum’s main campus in Rovereto, an extensive architectural complex inaugurated in 2002, designed by Mario Botta and Giulio Andreolli; the Casa d'Arte Futurista Depero, also in Rovereto; and the Galleria Civica in Trento. The latter is the most recent addition to the Mart, having opened its spaces in the historic center of Trento in October 2013. The Board of Directors of the Mart, appointed by the provincial council, is currently chaired by Ilaria Vescovi. The board members are Matteo Lunelli (Vice President), Stefano Andreis, and Maria Concetta Mattei. 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. Conceived more as a ‘cultural hub’ than a traditional museum, the public spaces of the Mart dialogue with the civic Library, the provincial Auditorium, the municipal Theater and public park. In addition to producing exhibitions, events and workshops, the Mart hosts artists, curators, companies, and events both international and local, serving as a welcoming and accessible destination. Today, the Mart is a museum complex of European scope, a partner for major international museums, a point of reference and dialogue for the surrounding territory, and a complex cultural machine that generates constant stimuli for the public as well as for artists, collectors, businesses and local communities.

THE NUMBERS




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 activities, results, strategies and resources in a clear, concise and accessible way.
