ARTES WILL BE A CENTER FOR THE ENHANCEMENT, DISSEMINATION AND LEARNING OF THE PERFORMING ARTS AND MORE BROADLY A COLLECTOR OF SOCIETY AND AGGREGATION.

from spring 2026  

OUR VISION

We believe art is an essential part of life.

Art reflects and informs the world...above all, it can and must be accessible to all.

We rely on artists to answer the most basic aspects of the human experience and the larger social issues facing our communities.

They hold a mirror to our thoughts, emotions, systems and cultures as they prompt us to question what is and imagine what could be.

As we work towards a better future, we look to the arts to bridge political, cultural and geographic divides, encourage diverse viewpoints and celebrate differences.

Mantua City Centre

ARTES will occupy an area of ​​11,000 m2 in the heart of Mantua, a few steps from the lakes and the port, in a scenographic context between the warm colors of medieval bricks and the green nature of the lake.

ARTES will host a Concert Hall with a restaurant, the Academy, an Exhibition Space, an Amphitheater, a Park, a Hotel, a Bistrot, a food and wine laboratory and a Concept Store.

CONCERT HALL

More than a thousand seats arranged on different levels and configurable according to the event, conceived and designed with priority on visibility and acoustics in order to enjoy the dreams, surprises and ingenious displays of the artists from every angle stage.

The concert hall will be the flagship of ARTES.

It will also be possible to dine or enjoy a drink before the shows and during the interval thanks to a restaurant integrated into the structure.

Restaurant

We want to give our clients the opportunity to take home the happy memory of an evening enlivened by the local gastronomy, perhaps refreshed or combined with the touch of an international "fusion" of tastes.

Offering our audience a place where they can enjoy the combination of excellent music and good food will be of primary importance for us.

Amphitheater

Designed for summer evenings, the amphitheater will be the ideal place for shows, performances and open-air concerts.

Immersed within the view of the ArteS Park, the stepped amphitheater is inspired by classical Greek and Roman structures and will be the open-air twin of the Concert Hall.

Park

A walk in the ArteS park will be the best way both to relax and to move from one environment to another. The paths in the shade of the trees will favor recreation and socialization in a context where antiquity, modernity and nature meet in harmony. Open and accessible to the public, the park will be a small green lung in the heart of Mantua.
