The MART – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto – is one of Europe’s most important museums. The MART was created in 1987 and now operates out of three separate locations: Rovereto, the main headquarters of the museum; the Casa d’Arte Futurista Depero, and the Civic Gallery in Trento. The main museum building was designed by Ticino architect, Mario Botta and Rovereto engineer, Giulio Andreolli, who took classic models as their inspiration, dedicating particular attention to technical solutions that in many cases, are on the cutting edge. The MART’s permanent collection includes over 15,000 works: paintings, drawings, engravings and sculptures, with important core collections, especially from the Avant-garde movement of the 20th century. As well as producing exhibitions, events and workshops, the Museum also hosts artists, curators, companies, and international and local events in its role as a welcoming, accessible structure.
The MART is one of the most attentive museum facilities when it comes to accessibility. There are many services especially for people with disabilities. There is a free Sign Language video guide to accompany deaf visitors through the permanent collections. The guide, available on tablet, is provided at the ticket office, free of charge. The MART, in collaboration with the ENS (Italian National Agency for the Deaf), has also made an Italian Sign Language video, which is available online, to provide important information about visiting the three museum sites. The Museum also organizes visits in Italian Sign Language (booking required).
