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