MAR (Ravenna Art Museum) is actively engaged in the preservation and promotion of Ravenna’s cultural heritage. Established in 2002, this museum is situated in the Loggia del Giardino, a splendid cloister originally part of the Santa Maria in Porto abbey constructed in the early 16th century and commonly referred to as Loggetta Lombardesca.

MAR offers a diverse range of exhibitions, with a particular focus on contemporary art. In addition to temporary contemporary art displays, the museum houses a permanent collection comprising more than 300 paintings, sculptures, and an extensive assortment of contemporary mosaics. These artworks provide insight into the local and broader art scene, spanning from the 14th century to the present day.

MAR is also home to Laboratorio Aperto, a significant initiative that serves as a hub for the appreciation of cultural heritage, digital culture promotion, and technological innovation. This project plays a vital role in attracting residents and fostering digital innovation, making it a key contributor to the Urban Agenda for the European Union. By emphasizing the central role of the city within the region, Laboratorio Aperto aims to enhance the cultural heritage and encourage citizen participation in the city’s strategic decisions through the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs).
