Omegna
Forum

The Arts and Industry Museum Foundation is a multipurpose facility created to promote historical research on the industrialization of Omegna and Cusio, the preservation of the historical memory of industry and crafts in the territory, the documentation of technological processes.

The Forum stands on a part of the land that occupied the Cobianchi steelworks, which was then discharged with the progressive de-industrialization of the area. The reconversion of the area from a place of work and effort to a new cultural and artistic center was entrusted to the prestigious study of the architect Mendini who was able to rebuild the physical space of the area with a highly original conception of structure and color.

The exhibition part presents the history of the home through objects produced by the famous local household industries that have made Omegna the Italian capital of the production of coffee pots, pans and all those objects that have revolutionized the Italian and world culinary culture.

This section is periodically paired with temporary exhibitions that touch on different themes.

The nearby Playground Park of Fantasia Park Gianni Rodari offers schools the possibility of integrating visits with interesting educational activities.
