Palazzo Merulana was born from the synergy of strength and communion of purpose between the Elena and Claudio Cerasi Foundation and CoopCulture. Established in 2014, the Elena e Claudio Cerasi Foundation houses a rich collection of modern and contemporary art, mainly focused on the art of the Roman and Italian schools of the Twentieth Century.
The founders' desire is to give back to Rome and the Romans a space that for a long time has been an urban void, that of the former Hygiene Office in Via Merulana 121. Thanks to an important restructuring operation that lasted more than 5 years, the Palace now lives on a rediscovered dignity, configuring itself as a point of contact for different realities and areas of the city.
The Cerasi Foundation chooses CoopCulture as a partner for an innovative management of the Palace and a widespread use of the collection.
With almost thirty years of experience in the management and innovation of cultural services, CoopCulture in recent years has expanded its commitment to the role that cultural heritage can play in the development of territories, in the redevelopment of spaces, in the growth of cultural participation as a factor of social inclusion and welfare.
