Magazzino Italian Art will begin welcoming the public back to the museum starting Friday, July 10th, in accordance with state, regional, and local guidelines of the phased reopening of the Mid-Hudson Region.  To mark the occasion, Magazzino has organized a special exhibition of contemporary art created by eight New York based Italian artists during the time of self-quarantine.  This exhibition was originally shared as part of the museum’s digital invitational Homemade.

Other summer programs include a drive-in version of the museum’s annual film festival, Cinema in Piazza, with screenings of Luca Vitone’s Romanistan (2019) and Andrea Mastrovito’s animated feature film I Am Not Legend (2020) to be held in August.

In preparation for its reopening, Magazzino has implemented a robust range of new protocols and procedural changes to ensure the health and safety of its staff, visitors, and broader community.  A key change includes the on-site distribution of EGOpro devices to each visitor, making Magazzino the first museum in the United States to adopt the new social distancing technology.

For visitors who are unable to come to the museum in-person, Magazzino will continue to create new online content to complement its on-site exhibitions and programs, all of which will remain available on the museum’s Magazzino da Casa webpage.
