Fondazione Morra Greco
Fondazione Morra Greco promotes and develops contemporary culture, supporting the vision of international and local artists, both emerging and established.
The Foundation originated from Collezione Morra Greco, which began in the 1990’s and thus far includes over a thousand works by around two hundred contemporary artists.
The Foundation’s headquarter is Palazzo Caracciolo di Avellino, a sixteen-century building located in the heart of the historical centre of Naples.
Both as a centre of production and as an exhibition space, the Foundation engages in a constant dialogue with the territory of Regione Campania.
Through its residency program, the exhibiting artists are invited to develop new projects that directly result from both their experience in Naples and their relation to the exhibition spaces of Palazzo Caracciolo di Avellino.
The interaction with the territory develops jointly with the communities that inhabit it. The Foundation organises workshops in order to promote cultural regeneration and educational opportunities within the local community.
Largo Proprio di Avellino, the public square located in front of the Palazzo, is also used as a site for exhibitions and events, highlighting the symbiosis between the Foundation and the city and the social impact of this relationship, which is the Foundation’s primary purpose.
Fondazione Morra Greco is committed to becoming a truly open space for people to meet and encounter contemporary art and each other.
