A program of events on the theme of walking

Curated by Andrea Lerda


In 2024 the National Mountain Museum of Turin will celebrate the 150th anniversary of its foundation. An important moment that, as part of the Sustainability Programme, will be celebrated through a multidisciplinary artistic program centred on the theme of walking, of which the exhibition Stay with Me. The Mountain as A Space of Resonance represents the initial moment.

The image of a Museum moving towards the future, exploring and speculatively tackling the great themes of the contemporary world, symbolically merges with the long journey to date of the original initiative of the first members of the Italian Alpine Club.

Stay with Me. A Whole Growing Exhibition is conceived as an exhibition in the making, a wide-ranging and temporally up-to-date investigation of the path from a historical-artistic, social and environmental perspective.
Through the involvement of those who inhabit the Highlands today, of the Piedmontese and Turin art scene, and thanks to the dialogue with a series of Italian and international key figures, the project will act as a condenser of visions and energies, consolidating the figure of the Museomontagna and the city of Turin as strategic places for reflection on the major themes affecting the mountains of the present and future.

The path will flow into the exhibition A Walking Mountain, at Museomontagna from November 2024.
