The Cultural Association Areacreativa42 was born in 2008 and it’s located at Casa Toesca, in the historic centre of Rivarolo Canavese (Turin).

The purpose of Areacreativa42 is to promote and value historic and contemporary art, with a particular attention to new generations, by creating exhibitions, events, educational path, workshops and artists residencies.

The eighteen-century house Casa Toesca is composed of many areas around an enchanting garden and five showrooms over two floors in the main house.

The activity of Areacreativa42 has been consolidated during the years, in Italy and abroad, with important collaborations with curators, embassies, artistic institutions and other cultural associations in Italy, Czech Republic, UK, France, USA.

From 2010, Areacreativa42 has organised the ART PRIZE CBM (Premio Biennale Carlo Bonatto Minella) that in its IV Edition was in Rivarolo, Turin, Milan, Prague, London and Madrid (
