Mart

Conceived as a cultural hub rather than a traditional museum, Mart represents a true 'contemporary landscape'.

The suburban nature of the area has enabled a quality initiative that responds to the needs of those who love culture, nature and well-being.

Since 2003 Mart has welcomed more than 3 million people, managing a heritage of about 20,000 artworks.

Our story

Founded in 1987 as an operational agency of the Autonomous Province of Trento, the MART, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto, has three locations: the Museum's headquarters (a large architectural complex inaugurated in 2002 and designed by Mario Botta and Giulio Andreolli) and the Casa d'Arte Futurista Depero are in Rovereto; the Galleria Civica, which became part of the MART in October 2013, is in Trento. Conceived as a contemporary agora, the Mart is a unique museum in an exceptional setting.
