The exhibition presents a selection of the most significant public projects designed by the architect Mario Botta. Spanning more than 50 years, his strong and successful professional career has dealt with the core cultural places of our time: libraries, theaters, museums and religious buildings, in far-ranging countries from Europe to Asia to America.

The exhibition includes 30 projects documented with sketches, original models and photographs. The story of Botta’s career runs through five main sections: 1) Encounters, which presents works in different fields from plastic arts to painting that have influenced the development of the man and the architect; 2) Libraries; 3) Museums; 4)Theaters; 5) Religious Spaces.

Mario Botta’s experience has its roots in the great tradition of modernism, born in the second half of the 20th century and now represents, at the beginning of a new millennium, a critical point of view regarding the fragility of models and styles of architecture offered by globalization.

The Museum is closed on Tuesdays.
