The client

With the 2002 Financial law (Article 35) it was possible for local authorities to set up foundations to entrust their artistic and cultural heritage on the basis of streamlined, modern and functional administrative and organisational models. Turin was the first Italian city to apply the article of this law and on 26 July 2002 the Torino Musei Foundation was born. The museums that belong to the Foundation are the GAM – The Civic Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, Palazzo Madama- Museum Civic of Ancient Art, la Rocca and medieval village and the MAO - Museum of Oriental Art. In addition to the City Council, which maintains a role of direction and control, other institutions such as the Piedmont Region, the Company of San Paolo and the CRT Foundation are also represented in the Foundation, in this way they have become full protagonists of the cultural and administrative life of the institution.
