The MAON - Art Museum nineteenth and twentieth centuries is located in the heart of Rende, in the province of Cosenza. The Museum was inaugurated in 2004 by the Center for art and culture "A. Capizzano "Rende and is headquartered in the Palazzo Vitari. The MAON is the only museum with a permanent museum collection of Calabrian artists of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

His collection includes works of art by famous artists such as Alighiero Boetti, Mario Schifano, Umberto Mastroianni, Nicola De Maria, Mario Ceroli and Lucio Del Pezzo. A small core of works are formed by graphic documenting the great masters of the twentieth century such as Picasso, Braque, Duchamp, Dali, Ernst, Balla, Burri and Kounellis. The Museum offers a very rich exhibition activity thanks to international relations with museums and collectors.
