  • One of Italy’s most prestigious contemporary art museum, Castello di Rivoli, hosts regular top-notch temporary exhibitions that dialogue with its world renowned permanent collection. The Iconic backdrop where modern and contemporary pieces are set against the beautiful but somehow fainted baroque wall paintings, has become one of its main signs of identity. On top of that, the building has a charismatic aura of its own, like a phantom palace set against the fairy-tale backdrop of the Alps.
  • Permanent collection with some interesting works but disposed in a total disorder on a very “old fashioned” way. Some of the works are so badly positioned that it is impossible to contemplate them (like the wall painting of Richard Long with a videoprojector hanging in the middle ; or the (otherwise beautiful) Bacon with a moving and lighting installation just front of it. It seems like a museum which once had seen some better days has became today totaly overaged and dusty. Some “fresh wind” would be desperately welcomed…… (We were like 5 visitors in the whole building, and I understand why…)
