- Venue Description:
MAMbo, or Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologn, is located in the former Forno del Pane (Bread Bakehouse), a huge building constructed at the beginning of 20th Century to feed a population dealing with the aftermath of World War I. It took 12 years of restoration to turn the bread factory into a 9000 square meter museum on two levels, organized around the central Ovens Hall and its two original smokestacks. The first floor houses the museum’s permanent collection: 3500 works dating from the 1960s onward, outlining features of Italian contemporary art. The ground floor holds temporary exhibitions.
