Thirty years have passed since the start of the adventure that saw the opening of the first Italian museum dedicated entirely to contemporary art. A wholly new and special museum, not only for the country, but also because it is housed in an architectural space of great art-historical importance, the Castello di Rivoli, a former residence of the royal Savoy family. The Castello has survived years of vicissitudes and events and still appears “unfinished” as the famous architect Juvarra left it. With its opening as a museum, Rivoli, the great unfinished, dream and obsession of the first king of Sardinia, became once more a site for work, for dialogue, for cultural dynamism and a privileged observatory for everything going on in the Italian art scene and also an integral part of the vaster and more advanced international cultural context.
