Museums

 

The Castle of Saluzzo was commissioned by Tommaso I to be built on preceding fortifications between 1270 and 1286. It then underwent successive modifications that led the Castiglia to its current appearance. Since 2006, the complex has been the focus of a patient and meticulous restoration project, with the goal of reopening it to public use. Moreover, since 2009 the Castiglia has hosted an exhibition of contemporary art from the private collection of the Istituto Garuzzo per le Arti Visive - IGAV (Turin), on loan from artists and gallerists to present visitors with a cross-section of the current artistic scene. Since 2009, the IGAV has hosted the work of more than forty artists, investigating themes relative to today's world and organizing temporary exhibitions (group shows featuring young, emerging and already established artists and solo shows for major figures), encounters, conferences and other cultural initiatives.

 

  • The IGAV Permanent Collection and Exhibition

IGAV – Istituto Garuzzo per le Arti Visive (the Garuzzo Institute for the Visual Arts), a not-for-profit cultural association based in Turin, was established in 2005 with the commitment to contributing towards the effort to raise the profile of Italian contemporary art.

With this intention, in the autumn of 2009, IGAV inaugurated, in the 19th-century wing of what was the former prison of Saluzzo, its Permanent Collection and Exhibition, which has become one of the so-called “Contemporary Sites”, selected by the Italian Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

The IGAV Permanent Collection and Exhibition is never static; rather, it is being continuously updated. The works, some of which belong to the Garuzzo Private Collection and some of which are loaned to IGAV by artists and gallery owners, illustrate to the public the evolution of Italian contemporary art and provide a snapshot of the current art scene.
