  • At the end of Course France you can see a castle: Castello di Rivoli that contains within it the Museum of contemporary art. Definitely worth a visit because the works are very significant, well told and explained and some were built and designed by artists for the Castello di Rivoli. Typically there is also a temporary exhibition: at this time there are two. From outside, weather and smog permitting, you can also marvel at Turin.

  • Very interesting restoration solution of an existing structure "important". Respectful intervention, but with suitable modifications to accommodate the Museum's function and make it easy to use. Permanent exhibition, with an obvious eye for arte povera in Turin home.

  • I went back to the castello di rivoli on the occasion of the current exhibitions and son was very impressed by the outfits. really interesting! WAEL SHAWKY on the top floor of the Castle long sleeve-which can be accessed by stairs in front of the ticket counter-is the retrospective dedicated to this artist born in 71 in Alexandria which can be visited until February 5, 2017. specifically to house the exhibition the walls of the long room dedicated to temporary exhibitions periodically were painted blue to create a striking contrast to the two buildings located at half of the channel and to immerse the viewer into a world away ... the theme of the work of shawky is indeed to the Crusades, revised based on Arab sources and views from the point of view of those who have suffered. at the beginning of route were placed 3 wooden reliefs, which include 3 moments in turn captured in so many paintings from different periods. among them Godfrey of Bouillon in the presence of the Emperor and the capture of a city in the Middle East. very nice, made by experienced craftsmen, rich in details and shapes that fill all available space. in 2 buildings of pink plasterboard, with typical battlements of buildings in the Middle East you can see the first 2 movie of the trilogy created by the artist between 2010 and 2015 entitled "the cabaret of the Crusades". the last is projected onto the back wall of the sleeve and you can see comfortably sitting on wooden school desks, as they used to. the entire trilogy was performed with the use of marionettes, which send a fabulous atmosphere and at the same time launch message that we are all somehow moved by wires which hold others. Unfortunately, the movies are all in Arabic with English subtitles and so difficult to follow. the inscriptions are fleeing away quickly and we don't always manage to read everything. though the images are very eloquent would have been correct to have a translation into Italian. the first movie lasts 31 minutes and opens with the plague that ravaged shortly before the first crusade to Jerusalem. He then sees the Pope's speech calling on starting to "liberate" the Holy Land, the propaganda work done in the countryside by Peter the hermit, the departure and the capture of Jerusalem, 1099 and 1096 between. no shortage of violence, betrayal and even cannibalism perpetrated by Westerners. the movie closes with a monk who goes to tell the Pope the capture of the city, only to realize he's dead ... the puppets used are wood and come from a laboratory in Turin. in the second movie dealing with the facts that have taken place between the end of the first Crusade and the second, of 1145. opens with Jerusalem in flames in order to continue with the facts that have taken place in various cities in the Middle East. lasts 60 minutes and in this case the puppets are made of ceramic. the last tube wants to narrate the facts that have taken place between 1145 and the third and last crusade, which ended in 1204 with the definitive expulsion of the Westerners by Saladin, painted figure in a totally different way from Arabs compared to how we used to know us. opens with the tale of a fact though oldest: the battle of 680 that caused the split between Shiites and Sunnis, today still very current. duration: 123 minutes. for this last movie of the trilogy shawky wanted puppets made of murano glass, which move in the same space, a garden, with concentric circles that spin alternated between the two pink buildings was recreated a garden fashionable Eastern, on a marble base of carrara and its lustre is reminiscent of the water, with bonsai and flower where are located the 24 glass puppets used by shawky in the third movie. are owned by two museums. Unfortunately the duration of 3 hours and a half does not allow to see all movies. Luckily a summary in Italian was placed near each projection. would still be shorter should be the second and third to see them all, or at least there were translations as was done for movies screened at the fondazione merz. alongside these projections the fondazione merz has another work by this artist. in a setting reminiscent of the desert with a dune, a Dovecote and a Palm-made with real sand covering the whole floor of the Foundation-3 movies are projected to another his trilogy, lasting about half an hour each. These are also in ancient Arabic with English subtitles but in consultation there are handouts with lyrics translated into Italian. excellent initiative! in this case there are no puppets but real children, dubbed with voices of adults. And ATKINS on the third floor of the building, above the two floors of the permanent collection, are instead exposed the work of a different kind of British artist and atkins, visible until January 29, 2017. in 5 rooms of the exhibition are projected onto large screens 5 video, whose texts also in this case are hard to understand because in English, with a sound that is not feeling very well ... the first has subtitles in French, the second in English and the other does not seem to me to be subtitled. Fortunately in this case 5 small panels explain at the beginning of the video content. Perhaps it was appropriate for placement in theaters so that they can be read while watching movies instead of all neighbors. but above all it is important to situate the chairs because the video requires an exact time overall vision and the alternative to see them all standing up is sit on the ground. I did it without delay but they are not all willing to get cross-legged ... the ability to use technology of atkins is absolutely stunning. the first video, which is also the most beautiful, lasts 8 minutes. you see a monkey that talks, a bed under which opens a hole and a hand with thumbs up that attracts the likes of facebook. When a jet of water floods the hand is absolutely spectacular. second and fourth videos have similar facilities, with a large screen in front of which covers a smaller wall, where you see only a severed head rolling down the stairs. big screen you see a naked man sitting on a chair with a very fluent speaker. lasting 13 minutes. the third is screened on 3 large screens, in the largest meeting room. of 13 minutes also shows a naked boy smoking, drinking, with several tattoos which lies beneath a table, spy from a hole in the wall and search company in some Club. the fourth lasts 6 minutes and you see a guy who quotes random dates and embraces an elderly gentleman ... maybe the father ... ends with the fifth lasting 21 minutes in which you see a room before you empty and then occupied by a man sleeping with his face swollen. at one point earthquakes stronger wobble all over until the entire bedroom is sinking into an abyss. was inspired by a true story. a man being swallowed by a sinkhole while sleeping in her bed! another video, which lasts 8 minutes, atkins is visible at the fondazione sandretto re rebaudengo. with the wonderful background of ravel's bolero a guy-video 4 and 5 the same-removing parts of the body and face at the airport, pass them to the control ... watching videos, experience the Museum can impress. Personally I didn't find anything so shocking, because it's all done with computer graphics. In addition to these exhibitions point out that in a room at the beginning of the climb to access the view of shawky illy Prize winner is awarded the 2015 Edition of artissima Russian artist alina chaiderov: two metal crutches on which rests a copper pipe in half ... in the first room of the second floor of the permanent exhibition there is an artwork of ai wei wei made with stakes of a temple of 1600 destroyed at the beginning of 900, which has integrated tables and chairs from various eras, which resembles the shape of China and will be at rivoli up when opening a Museum in China in 2019 where will be placed. and finally, on the balcony, you can see a work by a large white fiberglass hippopotamus villas rojas: that brings back a giraffe, made with organic materials of different nature ... the vision of the exhibitions and the permanent collection requires at least 3 or 4 hours, if you don't see all the footage. otherwise even 5 or 6 ... the ticket price for the only permanent exhibition of atkins is 6.50 €. If you're visiting to shawky is 8.50. free for owners of Museum subscription. These days is given by the ticket a logbook in various colors.

  • Amazing castle and good contemporanean art selection, the price of the ticket is ok
  • Great view and beautiful building
  • Both the castle that the square around it are both very beautiful and well maintained. The Museum is a special place because inside the Castle then contemporary art merges with the past and history. Some of the works have a long "inducing", the most famous and disputed is that of horse hung from the ceiling. To visit

  • Contemporary Art Museum located in the old Castle of the House of Savoy in Rivoli. Walking into those rooms between the former glory and today's featured art is an experience that one cannot describe you must try. Particularly in minimal environment of long sleeve
