About LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura

LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura is a new cultural centre in Lugano dedicated to the visual arts, music and the performing arts, which promises to become one of Switzerland’s most important cultural institutions, with the aim of promoting a wide range of art and establishing Lugano as a cultural crossroads between northern and southern Europe.

The striking architectural structure, which overlooks the lake, will provide space for a rich programme of exhibitions, events, musical events and theatre and dance performances, along with a variety of cultural initiatives. LAC will also be home to the newly-created Museo d'Arte della Svizzera italiana (Art Museum of Italian Switzerland), formed by the amalgamation of the Cantonal Art Museum and the Art Museum of the City of Lugano. A new 1,000 seat concert and theatre venue, entirely wood-panelled and fitted with a special modular and removable acoustic shell, is ready for a varied programme of performances and concerts.
