Designed by Mario Botta, MART (Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea) hosts world-class exhibitions and is one of Trentino’s unmissable experiences. The spectacular building, with spacious galleries wrapped around a central circular atrium flooded with light, is impressive enough even before you view the art inside. Skilfully curated, themed exhibitions use works loaned from institutions and individuals around the world as well as drawing on the gallery’s collection of 30,000 paintings, design pieces and sculptures by names including Lichtenstein, Rauschenberg and Warhol (as well as lesser-known locals such as Italian Futurist Fortunato Depero, Giorgio de Chirico and Giorgio Morandi). A smaller branch nearby, the Casa d’Arte Futurista Depero displays Depero’s large cloth collages, tapestries, furniture and other design pieces.
