MAMbo Review

The name of this museum stands for Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna, or Bologna's Museum of Modern Art. It houses a permanent collection of modern art (defined as post-World War II up until five minutes ago) and stages a revolving series of temporary exhibitions by cutting-edge artists. All of this is set within a remarkable space: you might have a hard time telling that the sleek minimalist structure was built in 1915 as the Forno del Pane, a large bakery that made bread for many of the city's residents. A bookshop and a restaurant complete the complex, the latter offering Sunday brunch and delicious aperitivi (aperitifs).
