MUSMA is the most important Italian museum entirely dedicated to sculpture and the only cave museum in the world.
It illustrates the history of Italian and international art from the late 1800s to today with a rich corpus of about 500 works including sculptures, ceramics, multiples, jewels, medals, drawings, engravings, art books donated to the Zétema Foundation, the promoter of the museum, by artists, collectors and gallery owners.
Curated by Giuseppe Appella, MUSMA is housed in the seventeenth-century Palazzo Pomarici, also known as “The Palace of one hundred rooms” because, with a total area of 2900 square meters, it consists of 7 vast underground hypogea dug out of the tuff, located in 3 large courtyards , and 10 rooms on the main floor.
The visitor can therefore experience an ideal integration, of intense emotional impact, between the secular environments “quarried” by man and contemporary sculpture. Temporary exhibitions are set up in the “Hunting Rooms”, rooms with fine and refined wall paintings.
