The Fondazione established in February 2015 by Massimo and Sonia Cirulli is built upon three decades of work and experience accumulated by the Massimo and Sonia Cirulli Archive. The Fondazione’s goal is to promote, at a national and international level, the knowledge of twentieth-century Italian art and visual culture, from the early years of the country’s engagement with modernity to the postwar economic boom.


The Fondazione will launch a variety of cultural projects complimenting the multifaceted character of its holdings, which survey several disparate fields—such as decorative arts, architectural design, industrial design, graphic design, and photography. These materials will tell the story of modern Italian culture through their unusual perspectives.


The building is a place that reflects the owners' point of view, a building that has always been a crossroad for different meetings during the XX century.

There have been many cultural and intellectual figures passing by, such as Carlo e Tobia Scarpa, Marcel Breuer, Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp.


Opening to the public: Tuesday-Friday 10am - 5pm, Sat and Sundays 11am - 8pm
