Magazzino Italian Art Foundation Launches Research Center, Fellowship Program

COLD SPRING, NEW YORK—Magazzino Italian Art Foundation, which is devoted to postwar and contemporary Italian art and is located in Cold Spring, New York, announced the opening today of a new research center, as well as a fellowship program. Francesco Guzzetti, an Arte Povera expert, will serve as its inaugural scholar-in-residence. Joining Magazzino after a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University, Guzzetti will lead tours at the center, contribute research on the museum’s holdings, and develop public programs.

The 20,000-square-foot museum, whose Miguel Quismondo–designed building opened last June, will make over four thousand publications and other archival materials available to the public through the initiative.

“Both the Research Center and Fellowship Program will offer new opportunities for scholarly research and critical assessment, further expanding Magazzino’s educational mission and advancing the appreciation and understanding of Italian Postwar and Contemporary art,” read a statement from the museum. Founded by Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu, the institution houses their four-hundred work collection, comprising works by artists such as Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Marisa Merz, Giulio Paolini, Giuseppe Penone, and Gilberto Zorio.
