“We are transforming what a museum of contemporary art can be, creating a new model that turns the paradigm of museums on its head. Instead of a museum of the past adding a contemporary wing, we are a museum of today, looking at the art of the past from a contemporary perspective. We are offering artists and the broader public the opportunity to relate up-close to periods that came before.”
–C. Christov-Bakargiev

The new Castello di Rivoli – Cerruti Collection campus will open on January 1, 2019, the birthday of the collector. It will incorporate the Cerruti Villa, built near the Castello by the collector and bookbinding industrialist Francesco Federico Cerruti (1922–2015) to house his collection. Never open to the public, the collection has remained a mystery, known only by experts and persistent art-lovers who made appointments to view it.

From the 1950s until his death in 2015, the reclusive Turin collector amassed almost 300 works of sculpture and painting, ranging from the Middle Ages to today, plus approximately 200 rare and ancient books with exquisite bookbindings, and over 300 furnishings including carpets from Anatolia, Egypt, Persia, Turkestan, Flemish tapestries as well as crystal Luis XV chandeliers, gilded and carved wall mirrors, a Steinway & Sons Grand piano, sets of silver coffee cups, carved mahogany ashtrays, oil jugs, carafes and desks by renowned Baroque cabinet makers.

An encyclopedic collection of immense quality, the Cerruti Collection includes extraordinary artworks by:
