GCDN Convening attendees can decide between four options for individual tours:

The Museo delle Culture safeguards most of the ethnic artworks collected by Swiss Italian artist Serge Brignoni (1903-2002) between 1930 and 1985. In 1985 Brignoni donated his collection to the City of Lugano. The City decided to house the Brignoni collection in the Villa Heleneum, an outstanding neoclassical mansion set in a tropical and subtropical botanical garden, thus creating the Museo delle Culture (the Museum of Cultures). The museum was first opened to the public on the 24th of September 1989.

A new chapter awaits the Museum of Cultures: the city of Lugano has decided to entrust the upcoming Fondazione Culture e Musei with the management of the Museo delle Culture. This foundatiois tasked to ensure the functioning of the Museo delle Culture by preserving its identity, autonomy and mission. The Foundation will allow a more efficient management, also thanks to its new headquarters at Villa Malpensata, who is being renewed and enlarged for the occasion. As such, this evolution of status and location will enable further sinergies and economies of scope, and intensify the interaction with the territory and the public. Consequently, the Musuem will benefit from the resulting outcomes, that will alllow to continues and improve its work, in every aspect its countless activities.
