Museum of Contemporary Sculpture of Matera

This breathtaking museum is housed in the historic XVII C Palazzo Pomarici, as well as several underground tunnels dug out of the soft tufa stone in the historic Sassi district. It is here that the Curator, Giuseppe Appella refers to it as the friendship museum. All the works of art have been generously donated by the artists themselves, their families, private collectors and other galleries.
The MUSMA boasts works of artists like Cambellotti, Cascella, Consagra, Del Pezzo, Matta to name but a few. The Collection includes sculptures in various materials as well as drawings, engravings, pieces of jewelry, medals and other pieces. The size and importance of the collection on exhibition make the MUSMA a true reference point for Art and Culture in Matera, and the Basilcata region as well as Southern Italy.
