Margherita Stein was the founder of the historic Galleria Christian Stein in Turin, Italy, and one of the pioneers of the Arte Povera movement, and Magazzino’s premiere presentation will continue her legacy in the United States by fostering a renewed dialogue around Postwar Italian art. Based on Stein’s legacy, the inaugural display at Magazzino will showcase over four decades of historic works by artists including Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Marisa Merz, Giulio Paolini, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Gilberto Zorio, Marco Bagnoli, Domenico Bianchi and Remo Salvadori.

Located along the Hudson River, in Cold Spring, New York, Magazzino will display works from the Olnick Spanu Collection, with the mission of supporting further recognition and research of Postwar and Contemporary Italian art in the United States.
