An exhibition path

that enhances the artistic knowledge of the territory

The building appears as a flexible space suitable for various uses depending on the needs.

Inside the space, the exhibition shows, through the art collections currently held by the Cassa di Risparmio di Volterra Foundation, the artistic knowledge and creative value of the Volterra territory, placing at the center of the entire project the concept of the center/motor of knowledge and creative practice, as a vehicle for cultural, tourist, and economic development.

A place that is open up to the surrounding territory and can attract the best of what the city of Volterra offers. A permeable and vital center of attraction, but also of propulsion, for the Volterra’s excellences.

It is not just a simple exhibition space but a complex center, flexible and adaptable for different purposes: exhibition, cultural design and production, support for artisanal knowledge, and collection of memory. In essence, it is a space dedicated to knowledge, elaboration, and support of creativity, a characteristic that has always been present and vital in Volterra and the area.

A sort of creative forge that from intellectual, cultural, artisanal, and social experimentation has generated in the past, still offers and could increasingly produce in the future consequences rich in opportunities for the development and well-being of the territory.
