FMAV - Palazzo Santa Margherita

Modena Visual Arts Foundation is a center of cultural production and 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 extra-territorial level aimed at enriching the community in which it operates. Located in one of the most important streets in the historic center of Modena, Palazzo Santa Margherita, whose name derives from the church that once stood in this area, hosts, in addition to the Modena Visual Arts Foundation - which since October 2017 has absorbed Galleria Civica and Museum of the Figurine which were located here - also other cultural services such as the Delfini Library and the Orazio Vecchi Music Institute. You enter the rooms of the Modena Visual Arts Foundation by going up to the first floor where the Sala Grande is located. Continuing to the left you enter the staircase that leads to the Upper Rooms on the second floor. At the same level, part of the photography collections and the drawing and graphics collection now managed by the Modena Visual Arts Foundation are also located, which scholars and enthusiasts can view by appointment. If from the Great Hall you continue in the opposite direction, past the ticket office and bookshop, you enter the staircase leading to the Figurine Room, a large space set up with exhibitors conceived as large albums to leaf through and a 12-meter showcase. On the same floor, the Museo della Figurina collection can also be consulted, by appointment, established starting from the donation of Giuseppe Panini. In Palazzo Santa Margherita, there are also two workshops that the Modena Visual Arts Foundation makes available for activities dedicated to children and teenagers.
