The Mart's Collections are the fruit of its acquisition policy as well as loans and donations. Made up of around twenty thousand works, this large patrimony has been enhanced via a programme of conservation projects, international loans and exhibitions.
A selection of masterpieces has been set up on the museum's first floor and illustrates the development of a modern lexicon from the 19th century through to the first half of the 20th century. The itinerary will periodically change with new work being added and is organised into six themed sections: Figures of Modernity; Metaphysical Art and Plastic Values; Magic and Reality; A Return to Order and Les Italiens de Paris; The Futurist Avantgarde and Towards Abstraction.
The exhibition is introduced by a focus on the Palazzo delle Albere museum project, Mart's historic venue whose rooms have hosted some of the great names of the Trento art panorama: Francesco Hayez, painter of the famous Venere che scherza con due colombe commissioned by Count Malfatti, Luigi Bonazza, Benvenuto Disertori and Luigi Ratini, centre-stage players in late 19th century Symbolist culture.
The starting point for an itinerary which explores the birth of modernity is Medardo Rosso's sculptural experimentation and the Divisionist painting experiments of Giacomo Balla and Umberto Boccioni. The classical modernity of some of the great Italian artists of the 1920s and 30s, such as Arturo Martini, Massimo Campigli, Felice Casorati and Mario Sironi, act as a counterpoint to these. The exhibition continues in the Futurist rooms where experimental work by Giacomo Balla, Carlo Carrà, Fortunato Depero, Enrico Prampolini and Luigi Russolo is compared and contrasted. The exhibition ends with the birth of Abstract art in Italy, represented by the artists who gravitated around Galleria Il Milione in the 1930s: Alberto Magnelli, Bruno Munari, Mauro Reggiani and Fausto Melotti, a sculptor of international fame whose career began right here in Rovereto.

An exhibition focus is dedicated to the new works of Giovanni Fattori, Franz von Stuck, Bartolomeo Bezzi, Libero Andreotti, Arturo Noci, Romeo Gregori, Piero and Guido Marussig acquired by Mart in 2021.
