Museo d’arte della Svizzera Italiana in Lugano is the result of an intensive review of cultural policy, which has led to the unification of the Museo Cantonale d’Arte and the Museo d’Arte di Lugano, forming a single institute. The museum has two locations: 20th century and contemporary art and the museum’s permanent collections are on display at LAC, while Palazzo Reali illustrates the history of art in the area and focuses on specific parts of the museum’s collections.
MASI Lugano’s main partner is Credit Suisse, confirming its historic commitment to art in Lugano.
