GAM Modern Art Gallery Turin

The GAM, Galleria di Arte Moderna (Modern Art Gallery) in Turin is an art museum that houses the oldest permanent collection of modern art in Italy.

The museum building, completed in 1959 after a design by architects Bassi and Boschetti, was re-opened in 1993 after a major renovation and enlargement work.

The permanent collection of the GAM is composed of about 45,000 artworks and includes paintings, sculptures, photos, and art installations. The collection is exhibited on 4 thematic sections, regularly renovated.
Along with the collection, the GAM also hosts temporary exhibitions and cultural events and, through its educational department, organizes workshops for families and schools.
