Kunst Meran - Merano Arte

Kunst Meran - Merano Arte (Merano Arts) is an atelier in the centre of Merano that is a meeting place for local artists

Actually it is more than just a museum: It is a combined gallery, a museum, stages different events such as concerts, performances, literary meetings, seminars and workshops, and enthuses lovers of contemporary and vanguard arts. Topics such as architecture, arts, literature, music, photography and new media are treated. Kunst Merano - Merano Arte can be visited in the Cassa di Risparmio House, a beautifully restored building in the Arcades of Merano.

On three floors and on 500 sqm, it provides plenty of space for exhibitions and an event hall for 70 people. The offer is completed by the Café Kunsthaus. Since 2004, Kunst Meran - Merano Arte is member of the Italian Museums of Contemporary Arts, AMACI. On the upper floor, there is by the way an atelier apartment, providing space for artists from all over as "artists in residence". In this way upcoming artists are promoted and introduced into the national arts scene.

And how to reach it? The Arcades in the old town of Merano are a pedestrian zone, around there are parking spaces. The busses stop at the nearby Piazza Teatro square or in the Via delle Corse.
