The MACHO - Horcynus Orca Contemporary Art Museum is located in Torre Faro in Messina. The Museum is part of the homonymous park of Messina which directly overlooks the homonymous strait. The Park was born from an idea of the Horcynus Orca Foundation to enhance the space in collaboration with contemporary art. The MACHO is located in a nineteenth-century fort inside the park itself. The exhibition spaces are characterized by the presence of interactive and multidisciplinary paths that range from different artistic and creative genres. The Park houses a museum collection consisting of paintings, installations, sculptures and video - works. The works were created and donated specifically for the foundation and in part acquired, all by artists from the Mediterranean area. Today the MACHO exhibits a collection of a hundred works and an archive of about 500 videos by more than 200 artists. The exhibition activities are conceived as a research and enrichment tool for the territory and its development.
