Founded in 2015, after just a few years the Museo d'arte della Svizzera italiana (MASI Lugano) has become one of the most visited art museums in Switzerland. It forms a cultural bridge between the north and south of the Alps, between Latin and Germanic Europe.
The historical location of Palazzo Reali, like the one at the LAC cultural centre, offers a rich programme with temporary exhibitions and changing collection presentations as well as a comprehensive, multilingual educational programme for visitors of all ages.
The offer is complemented by the close collaborations with the Collezione Giancarlo e Danna Olgiati, which is part of the MASI network, entirely dedicated to contemporary art.
MASI is one of the Swiss museums to be directly supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture and is also one of the “Art Museums of Switzerland”, the group of museums selected by Switzerland Tourism to promote the country’s cultural image worldwide.
