At the end of the 1950s, the Trentino futurist Fortunato Depero planned and realised the first museum dedicated to Futurism, thanks to an agreement with the municipality of Rovereto. The showroom was first opened in 1959 in the historic streets of the medieval town of Rovereto, in a building that once housed a pawnshop. With his museum project and his unique, modern works, Depero attempted to give new meaning to a historic building, an interplay between evolution and the past.
After his death in 1960, the partly unfinished museum was integrated into the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto (MART) in 1989. In 2009, one hundred years after the foundation of Futurism and after extensive restoration work true to the artist's wishes by architect Renato Rizzi, the museum was reopened to the public. About 3,000 art objects are on display, including paintings, graphics, furniture, boxwood inlays, tapestries and toys.
The Casa Depero is located in the historic centre, very close to the castle of Rovereto, which houses the Museum of Italian War History, and is about a 10-minute walk from the MART. Guided tours and didactic workshops are offered.
