About the Gallery
With its permanent collection the museum traces the history of Italian art from World War II to the present day, as seen through the experience of the former Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Bologna. MAMbo supports the most innovative artistic practices and helps outline the routes of contemporary art, through an exhibition program focused on research and experimentation.
The museum cooperates with cultural and academic institutions to promote opportunities for reflection involving scholars as well as the general public, stimulating the debate on contemporary culture. With its 9,500 square meters, MAMbo is the main seat of the Istituzione Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Bologna, which also includes Villa delle Rose, Museo per la Memoria di Ustica, Museo Morandi and Casa Morandi.
Located in the heart of the Manifattura delle Arti cultural district, the museum is the focus of various research- and innovation-based activities, such as the Cineteca di Bologna, the DMS workshop spaces, the Communication Sciences Faculty and many associations and art galleries.
