A prestigious exhibition space is housed in the old medieval buildings in Rimini historic center, the thirteenth-century Palazzo dell'Arengo and the fourteenth-century Palazzo del Podestà, which together with Palazzo Garampi, the Galli Theater and the Pescheria overlook Piazza Cavour, the heart of the city. Within this evocative context, affected by an initial redevelopment intervention, is housed the San Patrignano Foundation Collection, a collection of works donated by successfull contemporary artists of the Italian and international scene. The project is not only a museum of contemporary art, but connects culture, society, territory and people.
It is a substantial art collection, with works by Mario Airò, Vanessa Beecroft, Domenico Bianchi, Alessandro Busci, Maurizio Cannavacciuolo, Sandro Chia, Enzo Cucchi, Nicola De Maria, Flavio Favelli, Giuseppe Gallo, Alberto Garutti, Shilpa Gupta, Emilio Isgrò, Agnes Martin, Igor Mitoraj, Mimmo Paladino, Pei-Ming, Tullio Pericoli, Diego Perrone, Luca Pignatelli, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Julian Schnabel, Ettore Spalletti, Velasco Vitali, Silvio Wolf, Jean Paul Riopelle, Pietro Ruffo, Mario Schifano, Elisa Sighicelli, Francesco Vezzoli, Xiaongang Zhang and many others.
The PART also features a site-specific work of art by the artist David Tremlett, created with the help of members of the San Patrignano rehabilitation community.

In addition to the permanent collection, there is also a space dedicated to temporary exhibitions, which aims to be a reference point for contemporary artists, both Italian and international.

The importance of the place which houses the new museum, together with the artistic value of the works, suggested the idea of putting the contemporary in dialogue with the ancient, essential ground of study and creative inspiration. Hence the decision to reserve the place of honor in the exhibition for an extraordinary work, the fresco of the Last Judgment created by the painters of the Fourteenth-Century Rimini School under the guidance of its most important exponent: Giovanni da Rimini.
The tympanum of the Last Judgment by Giovanni da Rimini will remain for 18 months in the Arengo hall of the Municipality of Rimini, with the aim of giving a new prominence to that bright period in the history of art that is the fourteenth century in Rimini.

The buildings were restored and made fit for purpose by Luca Cipelletti’s AR.CH.IT Studio. Architect and lighting designer Alberto Pasetti Bombardella helped light the collection and surrounding space.

The PART – Palazzi dell’Arte di Rimini (Rimini Art Buildings) was officially opened onThursday 24 September 2020 for a special opening weekend.
