The Centro Pecci has always been more than just a museum, it is a place of production, research and a meeting point for the contemporary arts, as well as a venue for unique private events. Personalized events can be held in its various large spaces, in a highly evocative atmosphere with a strong visual impact. Its strategic location just 1 km away from the Prato Est tollgate, the wide range of parking options and the size of the rooms – unique in the city – make the Centro Pecci an ideal location for private and corporate events: from conferences to private dinners, professional development meetings and the possibility of holding fashion shows and corporate presentations. Each project – in agreement with the Management and in line with the institutional purposes of the Centre – is developed and implemented in a shared manner in order to achieve a successful outcome and mutual satisfaction.
The Centro per l'arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci is the first Italian institution which has been built from scratch to present, collect, document and promote the most advanced artistic research. Since its opening in 1988, it has produced a vast number of exhibitions and educational schemes, carried out activities of contemporary art documentation, and hosted numerous theatrical and multimedia events. It has built up a collection of over 1000 works which map artistic trends from the ‘sixties up to the present day: painting, sculpture, cinema and video, installations, works on paper, artist books, photographs, graphic art, applied arts and commissioned projects. In 2016 the Centro Pecci reopens after the completion of the futuristic spaceship-shaped extension by the Rotterdam-based Indonesian architect Maurice Nio, and the renovation of the original building designed by the Rationalist architect Italo Gamberini.
