Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo

The 18th century Palazzo Re Rebaudengo belonging to Guarene d'Alba in the province of Cuneo houses the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudegno for art. Over the years the palace has become one of the most excellent centres of contemporary art, a meeting place for the new generations of artists, critics and curators of exhibitions, chronicling and displaying new advances in art.

Fondazione Merz

Fondazione Merz is a foundation whose first objective is to preserve Mario Merz creations. Additionally it promotes educational and cultural events and exhibits related to contemporary art and culture. It is located in a 1930s thermal power station that has been completely remodeled and offers three levels of galleries and exhibition space for art shows and events. Fostering an interest in contemporary art and providing a platform where people can appreciate and learn about art is one of the center's major goals, leading to workshops, lecture series and more in a dynamic environment.

Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli

If paintings of the great masters such as Canaletto, Canova and Matisse interest you then you must head to the Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli. This art gallery, which opened in 2002, was a gift to the city of Turin from the president of the automobile company, Fiat. Sitting pretty in the neighborhood of Lingotto, this art-site exhibits a permanent collection by well-known artists as well as holds temporary exhibitions. When you are tired of gazing through the gallery rest your feet at the food and refreshments section, or browse through the library. For the not-so-art-savvy crowd, there are private tours and audio-guides in Italian and English. Check the website for information on events.

Castello di Rivoli

The castle; which currently houses the Museum of Contemporary Art, was one of the most important residences of the court of Savoy from the 16th century. The first building work was undertaken in 1562 after Francesco Paciotto was commissioned by Emanuele Filiberto. Construction was continued by Ascanio Vitozzi and later completed by Charles and Amedeo di Castellamonte. After damage caused in 1693 by the French, work was taken up again, first by Michelangelo Garove (who proposed doubling the size of the building), then by Filippo Juvarra but the project was not completed. Castello di Rivoli is among the most popular landmarks and attractions today.
