Rimini and the PART Museum
The PART – Palazzi dell’Arte Rimini comprises two historic buildings (the medieval Palazzo dell’Arengo and the Palazzo del Podestà), which have both been recently restored to their former architectural glory. The buildings now host a museum exhibiting an exciting overview of creative contemporary art thanks to its exceptional art collection.
Overlooking one of Rimini’s most beautiful town squares (Piazza Cavour), the PART is the fruit of a partnership between the local municipality and the San Patrignano Foundation. Along with The Last Judgment by Giovanni da Rimini (a wonderful fresco dating back to the 1300s) and a permanent mural by David Tremlett, the museum also displays the San Patrignano Foundation’s eclectic and unique collection of important twentieth and twenty-first-century artworks.
From Mario Airò to Vanessa Beecroft, from Domenico Bianchi to Nicola De Maria and from the works of Sandro Chia, Pier Paolo Calzolari, to Enzo Cucchi, Zehra Doğan and Sam Falls – just to name a few – the artworks on display at the PART belong to a rare, prestigious and original collection.
The PART is open to visitors from 9.30am to 1pm and from 4pm to 7pm every weekday except Mondays (not including bank holidays). The museum is open from 10am to 7pm on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays. Guided tours take place on weekends.
