The Israel Museum is the largest cultural institution in the State of Israel and is ranked among the world’s leading art and archaeology museums. Founded in 1965, the Museum houses encyclopedic collections, including works dating from prehistory to the present day, in its Archaeology, Fine Arts, and Jewish Art and Life Wings, and features the most extensive holdings of biblical and Holy Land archaeology in the world. In just forty-five years, thanks to a legacy of gifts and generous support from its circle of patrons worldwide, the Museum has built a far-ranging collection of nearly 500,000 objects, representing the full scope of world material culture.

Fondazione Marino Golinelli

The Fondazione Marino Golinelli (FMG) was created in 1988 and announced during the celebrations for the 900th anniversary of the founding of the University of Bologna. 
Recognized by Decree of Presidency of the Republic on 2 October 1989, it is now a national reference point in the field of promotion of scientific culture. 

Since its creation, the Foundation operates with the school system and the public sector through innovative, original initiatives and projects, to make a contribution to the birth of the future knowledge society.
Besides supporting research, producing original informal educational projects and promoting encounters and debates, starting in 2000 FMG has developed educational training projects capable of stimulating discussion, improving the relationship between citizens and schools, universities and research, the world of business and work, so that research and innovation can play an increasingly important role in the future of our country.

This is the perspective behind the Life Learning Centee, created in 2000 through cooperation between Fondazione Marino Golinelli and the University of Bologna. Today, the LLC is the operative division of FMG for research, training and education on the Life Sciences.


ARTEPRIMA is a cultural association based on the following principles:

A suburb is a place where contemporary culture cannot enter and grown. An area impenetrable both to knowledge and to notions which are vital nourishments of human being.
Knowledge is a fundamental value for the development of open-minded people. That’s why our goal is to share what we, our artists and our cultural operators know.

Through art it is possible to get real values such as intelligence and lateral thinking. Art helps to preserve the memory and to stimulate the imagination by creating knowledge and awareness.


Associazione Amici Arte Contemporanea Italiana è nata nel 2003 per volontà della sua Presidente Gemma De Angelis Testa ed oggi ne fanno parte circa un centinaio di soci, tra cui spiccano i nomi più significativi del collezionismo italiano. L’Associazione si è costituita con l’obiettivo di sostenere l’arte e gli artisti italiani e di promuovere la costituzione di un museo pubblico di arte contemporanea a Milano, attraverso un dialogo costante con le Istituzioni cittadine. Lo spirito di ACACIA è quello di evidenziare il ruolo del collezionista attivo, assumendosi la responsabilità di una coscienza pubblica, operando concretamente perchè l’arte contemporanea sia promossa, conservata e tutelata.

L’Associazione in questi anni si sta battendo non solo per ottenere un “contenitore” adeguato e propulsore dell’arte contemporanea italiana a Milano, ma anche per dotarlo di una collezione affiancata da prestiti e donazioni. ACACIA sin dalla sua costituzione, ha attivamente cooperato con diversi protagonisti della scena culturale nazionale e internazionale elaborando un ricco programma di attività culturali per il pubblico. L’Associazione propone e cura eventi culturali come workshop e conferenze, tra cui i fortunati cicli di incontri sull’arte contemporanea tenuti al PAC nel 2004, nel 2005 e l’ultima serie nel 2009 con l’intervento di importanti critici e curatori internazionali.
