Castello di Rivoli is a collecting institution that also works as a place for creativity, research, participatory education, and the development of knowledge primarily in the field of contemporary art. Working at international level, Castello di Rivoli established a role model for a number of institutions in Italy, pioneering the idea of a museum focusing on contemporary art. Through its radical exhibitions and ground-breaking performances, since its foundation in 1984, the Museum has grown in dialogue with the Baroque building that hosts it. Designed in 1718 by Filippo Juvarra, and recognized by UNESCO as a Word Heritage Site since 1997, the Castello is a continuous inspiration for artists, and stimulates the creation of new works specifically conceived for its permanent collection.
A vital center for experimentation, through its activities both in its physical spaces and online through its website, and other digital formats, Castello di Rivoli promotes the work of major artists of different generations, and various geographic and cultural origins. The Museum fosters this process by drafting a coherent exhibitions and public events program focused on its extraordinary collections and on the organization of ground-breaking and broad-ranging temporary exhibitions accompanied by an extensive catalogs and publications program.
