Museum of Contemporary Photography

The Museum of Contemporary Photography, the first public museum in Italy dedicated to contemporary photography, occupies the south wing of the seventeenth-century Villa Ghirlanda Silva in Cinisello Balsamo-Milan. Since 2004, the year of its opening, it is an active structure in the field of conservation, cataloging, study and dissemination of photography. It has a heritage of about 2 million photographs, including black and white and color prints, slides, negatives, videos, installations by over 600 Italian and foreign authors. The collection, in continuous implementation, is organized in 38 photographic collections, which derive from public commissions carried out since the mid-eighties of the twentieth century, from acquisitions, donations and deposits. The set of images constitutes a significant cross-section of photography from the post-war period to the present day and presents important themes such as the transformations of the contemporary landscape, the portrait, social photography, reportage, artistic research.
 
The museum also houses the largest specialist library in photography existing in Italy and one of the largest in Europe, which today has almost 20 thousand volumes and magazines, coming from purchases, exchanges with other institutions and numerous private donations.
 
The Museum of Contemporary Photography Foundation is made up of the Municipality of Cinisello Balsamo and the Metropolitan City of Milan (founding bodies) and Triennale di Milano (Institutional participant). Lombardy Region and Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism support the institution.
