Initially hosted in the Municipal Palace, the Marino Marini Center and Foundation are both now located in Palazzo Tau, a 14th century complex that once housed the Hospital Order of Saint Anthony Abbot. Founded on August 27, 1985, the Marino Marini Foundation has been recognized by the Provincial Prefect of the Province of Pistoia. The Foundation’s aim is to maintain, safeguard and valorize works by the artist from Pistoia, raising awareness about his creative journey in Italy and abroad. It reaches this goal by sponsoring anthological exhibitions, art publications and various events geared toward research and study. The Foundation’s exhibition spaces spotlights Marini’s ample collection of sculpture, in addition to providing visitors with a glimpse of his drawings, graphic illustration, tempera works and oil paintings. Palazzo Tau serves as a multi-purpose center; the museum’s atrium hosts numerous concerts, theatrical events, lectures, poetry readings and book presentations, establishing a continuous cultural dialogue within the city.
