Museo Nivola, in Orani, is an institution devoted to the work of Costantino Nivola within the larger context of contemporary art, landscape and living traditions.
The museum was established in 1994, a few years after the death of Nivola in 1988, thanks to the efforts of Nivola’s widow, Ruth Guggenheim, the township of Orani and the Regional Government of Sardinia. It has been expanding ever since.
The permanent collection holds more than four hundreds sculptures, paintings and drawings by Nivola, who played a unique role in 20th century modernism as an artist who worked closely with architects.
Aside from exhibiting Nivola’s work, the museum produces temporary exhibitions on a regular basis. These center mainly on the relationship between art, architecture, and landscape.
