Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Donna Regina (M.A.D.RE)
The Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Donna Regina (M.A.D.RE) stands in the historical heart of Naples, close to the Cathedral and the Treasure of St.Gennaro, a hundred yards from the Museo Archeologico Nazionale. The museum is home to contemporary art with a rich permanent collection of works made specifically for this building as well as many periodic exhibitions.
The Museum owes its name to the building that houses it, the Palazzo Donnaregina, which stands next to the Monastery of S. Maria Donnaregina. All that remains today are two churches: the church of S. Maria Donnaregina on Piazza Donnaregina, built in the baroque period, and the earlier church of S. Maria Donnaregina Vecchia, in Quattrocento Gothic, today open to the public during exhibitions and special events organized by the Museum.
In June 2005, the MADRE celebrated its new premises by opening the site-specific installations on its first-floor rooms. This was followed in December 2005 by the inauguration of the historical collection housed on the second floor. The third floor of the building houses temporary exhibitions, current details of which can be found on the museum website.
