Located on the premises of Coesia group, sponsored by the philanthropic owner of the company. Some cool educational exhibits about technology as well as nice photo exhibit by several artists on the topic of people migration. I guess the exhibit changes regularly.

The MAST-building is probably one of the most modern buildings in Bologna and it's gorgeous. Also, the expositions are very interesting and worth the trip. Free entrance if I remember well.

The MAST is a unique place in Bologna, the building is very modern. The MAST combines the touch of industrial Bologna with art and photography. The mix of photography, artworks, multimedia elements and experiments with visitor interaction is well selected.
