MART was a refreshing visit: something so simple and fresh was unexpected in this typical old town below Trento.

The layout of the gallery is clear and clean and the building doesn't interfere with the exhibits: In some cases, like the circular internal glazed mezzanine, it enhances them.

We visited during the exhibition on WW1 and the works were presented in a fascinating, thought-provoking way. Rovereto was in an important, strategic position during that conflict and this is emphasised without being overstated. Local artist Fortunato Depero (a number of his Futurist works are on temporary loan here from their permanent space up the road) has a significant presence but within a context.

Overall, MART is well worth including on a visit to Rovereto, Trento and the surrounding area.

An excellent modern arts museum considering that it's located in a rather small town. I took the audioguide and it was a couple of hours well spent.

MART is a lot bigger and better museum than you would expect in a small town like Rovereto. We visit it a couple times a year to see the changing exhibits. One of the best modern art museums we have found.

Located in Rovereto, Northern Italy, the building designed by the Swiss architect Mario Botta with the Roverteo engineer Giulio Andreolli. It's worth seeing the museum building as well as the exhibitions, a large part of the collection is devoted to Futurism.
