Fondazione Luigi Rovati
About the museum
The Fondazione Luigi Rovati inaugurated its Art Museum at the beginning of September: two exhibition floors, more than 250 works that take the visitor from the world of Etruscan art to that of contemporary art.
Thanks to the restoration, extension and redevelopment of the building developed by the MCA-Mario Cucinella Architects studio, the Hypogeum Museum houses triangular glass cases displaying large vases, votive offerings and small Etruscan bronzes alongside contemporary works by William Kentridge, Lucio Fontana and Arturo Martini.
From the Hypogeum Floor, the visit continues to the Piano Nobile where all the rooms have been recovered and redesigned to create an avant-garde exhibition space: from the wood panelling to the gilded doors, from the floors to the marble fireplaces, up to the tall 18th-century mirrors in the corridor. Here, too, contemporary artists exhibit works in spaces populated by Etruscan sculptures and artefacts.
On the first floor, the Spazio Bianco and in the garden the Pavilion are dedicated to temporary projects. A space that is not just a museum, but a “place for research, experimentation and knowledge and responds to the principles of social utility that guide all the Foundation’s activities.” (Giovanna Forlanelli, President of the Rovati Foundation).
