AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA … GREAT ARTISTS
There are no walls; the only demarcation is by nets, which enclose a space where marine fauna and flora combine with artwork to give visitors a unique and unforgettable experience. Anchored at the bottom, between 4 and 7 meters, are installations by 14 internationally renowned contemporary artists (Angi, Boero, Bricalli, Cardillo, Carloni, Chapalain, Ciccobelli, Cogorno, Kosice, Mustica, Nussbuam, Patterson, Polesello, Sturla). The works, all statues depicting subjects related to the marine world, are placed on the precious seabed following the helical shape to resemble that of the shell.

GROUPERS AND BREAM TO LEAD THE WAY
The museum is set in a real aquarium that houses large fish usually found in the depths of our seas: groupers, giltheads, stingrays, amberjacks that will enrich the visit in a perfect combination of sea and art. This innovative underwater exhibition space originated as a public museum donated to the Municipality of Golfo Aranci by architect Lucio Micheletti and is a 2012 winner of a special award at the GrandesignEtico International Awards.

THE MIZAR SUBMARINE
Complementing this evocative setting is the Mizar submarine, a semi-submarine that makes the experience directly usable by the public. In fact, aboard this “yellow submarine” it is possible to have a truly unique experience thanks to the portholes on the bottom that will make the visit to MuMart intense and exciting. In addition to aboard the submarine, it is possible to visit MuMart by diving with the diving centers in the area or by snorkeling. The museum thus presents the possibility of being visited in multiple ways, accommodating different passions and tastes and offering a constantly new and engaging point of view.
