Founded by art advocates Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu, Magazzino will house works from the Olnick Spanu Collection.

The new art warehouse conceived and designed by Spanish architect Miguel Garcia Quismondo will feature a permanent collection which will be rotating as well as an extensive library of Italian art.

Magazzino will also host programs for the local community, surrounding universities, art historians and scholars.

As residents of the Hudson Valley community for more than 25 years, Nancy and Giorgio look forward to opening a space that gives access to works of Italian art not previously seen in the United States.
