About the Museum
The Parco Arte Vivente (PAV; Living Art Park) in Turin is an experimental center for contemporary art. Located in a former industrial area that manufactured car parts, the 23,000-square-meter park includes an open-air exhibition space and an interactive museum that serve as a meeting place and laboratory for the exploration of the relationship between art, nature, biotechnology, and ecology. It was created by artist Piero Gilardi and landscape architects Gianluca Cosmacini and Alessandro Fassi and opened in 2008. The PAV hosts twelve site-specific installations as well as a number of temporary exhibitions. In addition, the PAV organizes a number of activities for the public, including workshops, seminars, and guided tours.
