The Museo Nivola of Orani is dedicated to the artist Costantino Nivola, to contemporary art, to the landscape and to living traditions. Its activities play a key role in supporting the territorial and the Sardinian cultural and economic development. The museum, directed by the Foundation "Fondazione Costantino Nivola", was established in 1995, a few years after the death of Constantino Nivola (Orani, 1911 - Long Island, 1988), and has continued to grow over the years.
Today, the Museum is a cultural complex where art, architecture and nature blend together harmoniously. The building is actually surrounded by a park that features the ancient spring Su Cantaru that still plays a symbolic and functional role for the villagers.
The permanent collection boasts hundreds of sculpture, painting and graphic works of Nivola, who, as an artist, played a crucial role in the modernist focus on the relationship between sculpture and architecture in the 20th century. The museum also houses temporary exhibitions and artist residences mainly linked to Nivola's main themes (relationship between art, architecture and landscape, and public and participatory art).
