The Carlo Zauli Museum is a private institution that, believing in active collaboration with local institutions and companies, builds its programming in dialogue with all the main players in the social fabric.



Municipality of Faenza

The Municipality of Faenza has supported us continuously since the opening year. It has entered into an agreement with MCZ to support the opening of the space to visitors and the main projects.

It also supported special projects such as the exhibition in Japan dedicated to Carlo Zauli, several events of the Festival of Contemporary Art, and various editions of Artist Residencies.

We are happy to provide the municipality with our space to host local events, and to collaborate on particular projects, such as the Japanese October.

Since 2012, the Municipality of Faenza and MCZ, together with MIC, have been the promoters of Kart, Faenza's contemporary theatre programme.

Emilia Romagna Region

Regione Emilia-Romagna supports the museum since 2015 in particular in the MCZ Summer Pavilion project, the calendar of summer events from June to September, now in its fourth year.

In 2018, the museum joins the Culture Week as part of programming  “EnERgie Diffuse – Emilia -Romagna un patrimonio di culture e umanità”.

Fondazione Banca del Monte e Cassa di Risparmio Faenza – Crédit Agricole

Fortunately, something has been changing in recent years, in the young generation, but not only. Especially with regard to the art-nature relationship, Zauli's primary one, even if today often with accents of mutual hostility, absent in the Faenza artist's own sculptures in which the primitive formal control is agitated, raped, yet not suppressed.



Associazione Amici della Ceramica e del MIC

Associazione Amici della Ceramica e del MIC, which was established in 1978 to support and promote Faenza's ceramics-related activities is a partner of the Carlo Zauli Museum on projects dedicated to ceramics and the conservation of the collection

Fondazione del Monte di Bologna e Ravenna

Fondazione del Monte di Bologna e Ravenna has been a partner since 2014 in supporting a didactic project that is very important for us: the Course for Curators, an experience reserved for selected students of the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna, completely free of charge, now in its second edition, under the coordination of Guido Molinari, lecturer in Art Psychology and co-curator of the MCZ Artist Residence project.

Fondazione del Monte di Bologna e Ravenna also collaborated on the exhibition Carlo Zauli. Le Zolle, dedicated to the sculptor from Faenza, and set up at the Museo Civico Medievale in Bologna.

The key to understanding the realisation of the MCZ is undoubtedly the spirit of sharing that the city's main forces have shown in the face of the opening project: on the one hand, the city's institutions, which have ensured fundamental collaboration and strategic and communicative support, and on the other hand, the local businesses that have supported the project and from whose collaboration the resources to realise it have been generated.
