Thirty years since its opening and with a fully renewed style, the MUSEC hosts in Villa Malpensata a rich exhibitions and events program which, with an anthropological point of view, comprises Primitivism as the photography of Exotism. Aware of the continuous transformations of our society, the Museum incessantly inquiries about the possibilities of cultures’ dialogue.
