• Exhibitions of modern and contemporary art.

Founded in 2015, within 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 provides a cultural interface between the Italian-speaking and German-speaking areas of Switzerland and between southern and northern Europe. At its two locations – the LAC cultural centre and the historic Palazzo Reali – it offers a diverse programme with temporary exhibitions and changing collections as well as a comprehensive, multilingual educational programme for visitors of all ages. The offer is complemented by close cooperation with the Collezione Giancarlo e Danna Olgiati, which is part of the MASI network and entirely dedicated to contemporary art. MASI is one of the Swiss museums directly supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture and is also part of the “Art Museums of Switzerland”, a group of museums selected by Switzerland Tourism to promote the country’s cultural image worldwide.
