FMAV - Palazzina dei Giardini
Fondazione Modena Arti Visive is a center of cultural production and of professional and didactic training aimed at spreading contemporary art and visual culture and acting as a point of reference in the interaction between different artistic disciplines and languages and in the dialogue between the arts, science and technologies.
Thanks to the multiplicity of the offices it manages and collecting the legacy of the three institutions merged into it - Civic Gallery of Modena, Modena Photography Foundation, Figurine Museum - Modena Visual Arts Foundation, it presents itself as a cultural district that proposes and organizes exhibitions and courses of advanced training, workshops, performances and conferences, enhancing its heritage and building a system of networks at a local and extraterritorial level aimed at enriching the community in which it operates. fun place for the Este court - inside the gardens of Palazzo Ducale, the construction of the Palazzina is attributed to the architect Vigarani. Together with the park, it was donated a century later by the Duke to the citizens; over the years it fell into disuse, until it became a greenhouse and tool shed in the twentieth century. Towards the end of the seventies, as part of a plan to enhance the historic center promoted by the municipal administration, the building was restored and brought back to its original scenographic function. A subsequent and recent conservative restoration has made it possible to further enhance the extraordinary quality of the spaces, the large windows, the spacious wall surfaces and the heights, making the Palazzina an excellent place for exhibitions of international importance.
