Why locals love it
The MACAO art project began in 2012 with the occupation of a skyscraper in downtown Milan. After various adventures (including being evicted from the skyscraper by police), its founders relocated to an old slaughterhouse in the city’s eastern suburbs to continue promoting underground culture and political participation.
Why you should visit it
Thanks to a series of self-financed cultural activities, it has now become a permanent meeting place for art-loving locals and visitors. One of MACAO's most important projects was its recent collaboration with Workcenter – an exceptional theatre group based in Pontedera, Tuscany.
MACAO’s cinema, photography, theatre and music groups are open to anyone who wishes to be a part of the experience!
