The Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana (MASI), Lugano is the result of the merging between the Museo Cantonale d’Arte and the Museo d’Arte Lugano. It is based in the LAC and in Palazzo Reali, the current site of the Museo Cantonale d’Arte.
The Museum brings together the City of Lugano and the Canton Ticino’s collections, which are complementary: in fact they cover a period of time that goes from ancient times until this day, with a particular attention payed to the Swiss and Italian art scenes in the 19th and in the 20th centuries, making significant inroads into the international context. In Palazzo Reali art works will be presented in a range that goes from early 15th to the middle of the 20th century, with close attention payed to the relationship with the local area.
The new LAC exhibition site, located over three floors, hosts on a floor the permanent exhibition whilst the other floors are devoted to temporary exhibitions, designed to explore modern and contemporary art. Thanks to these spaces and specific designed equipment, conceived to handle the art works in line with the most modern safety and conservation standards, the museum can house projects so far extremely hard to organise. The striking architectural structure provides the opportunity to analyse aspects of the 20th century and contemporary art, where the boundaries between the various disciplines are blurred.
