The Nicola Trussardi Foundation is a no profit institution for the promotion of contemporary art and culture. Neither a museum nor a collection, the Trussardi Foundation acts as an agency for the production and the diffusion of contemporary art in a wide variety of contexts and channels.
Under the direction of president Beatrice Trussardi and with the artistic direction of Massimiliano Gioni, in 2003 the Nicola Trussardi Foundation has decided to concentrate its resources on the realization of contemporary art events in the public spaces of the city of Milan. After many years of activity in the exhibition spaces of Palazzo Marino alla Scala, the Nicola Trussardi Foundation has decided to explore new territories and modes of presenting contemporary art, by pushing the boundaries of the spaces traditionally devoted to today’s creativity. The city of Milan will become the stage for the Foundation’s incursions in the field of contemporary: the city thus function both as a source of inspiration and a privileged site for the Foundation’s projects and activities.
Along with its exhibition program, the Foundation will also promote a series of more agile projects (such as publications, inserts in magazines, mail projects etc) devoted to the diffusion of contemporary art in every aspect of our daily life.
