Two historical buildings, brought back to their architectural splendour.
A new and different museum. A rare fresco, a masterpiece of Italian medieval art. An exceptional art collection: a fascinating overview on contemporary creativity, located in one of Rimini's most beautiful squares.
The PART is the result of a collaboration between the Municipality of Rimini, owner of the Arengo and Podestà buildings – which have undergone restoration works in order to provide the city with a large space for contemporary art – and the Fondazione San Patrignano.
Together with The Last Judgment by Giovanni da Rimini, an exceptional fresco dating back to the 14th century, its rooms house the Collezione Fondazione San Patrignano. An eclectic and varied collection of important artworks from the 20th and the present century. It is now accessible to citizens and visitors, thanks to an unprecedented and virtuous collaboration between public and private institutions.
In the belief that “Art is community.”
[ In accordance with current government regulations, as of 6 August 2021, it is mandatory for visitors to present the basic Green Pass or equivalent certification along with a valid ID to enter the Museums.

The Collection came into being in 2017 to support the San Patrignano Community, and it is constantly enriched by donations from prominent artists, collectors and international gallerists.
The Last Judgment by Giovanni da Rimini, one of the Italian masters of the early 14th century, was originally located in the church of the Hermits of St Augustine. It is now exceptionally exhibited at the PART, fostering an unprecedented dialogue between medieval and contemporary art.
Visitors are welcomed by a new permanent wall drawing by the English artist, specifically conceived for the PART and made together with the participants to the San Patrignano workshops.
