MAM - Mendrisiotto Art Museum Network

Mendrisiotto, the southernmost region in Switzerland, is home to a great variety of valuable architectural and artistic works: this artistic and cultural wealth is reflected in the art museums in the district: the Museo Vincenzo Vela in Ligornetto, the Pinacoteca Cantonale Giovanni Züst in Rancate, the m.a.x. museum in Chiasso, the Museo d'arte Mendrisio and the Teatro dell'architettura Mendrisio. Such a high density of art museums with outstanding cultural offerings in a geographically limited region is unique not only in Ticino but also beyond its borders. These institutions have now joined together in a network in order to strengthen the visibility of their collections (painting, photography, sculpture, graphics, architecture), their temporary exhibitions and the various collateral events, promoting awareness and enhancing the individual institutions with coordinated collaborations and synergies.

The network of Mendrisiotto Art Museums (MAM) has given itself its own visual identity: a new logo as a first step to make itself recognisable and a website with an updated agenda to allow visitors easy access to all the initiatives carried out by the respective museums or organised collectively.
