Fondazione Banca del Monte di Lucca
The reopening of the complex took place in several stages: the Auditorium and the ground floor rooms opened in December 2008 with the launch of the foundation’s exhibition activities.
Since 2012 the foundation has its own exhibition centre close to the Cathedral of Lucca and the foundation’s headquarters. One part of the building is the Oratory of the Madonna. The auditorium, is situated in the former Oratory. Here the foundation holds events which are organized by the Fondazione Banca del Monte di Lucca and other institutions and associations.
Throughout the year several exhibitions, meetings, conventions, conferences and cultural activities take place. The exhibitions offer free entrance and are organized by the foundation. The exhibition centre presents the work of young and well-known artists.
The building also houses the foundation’s library and the documentary archive “Fondo documentario Fratel Arturo Paoli”.
