The m.a.x. museo, inaugurated on 12 November 2005 on the initiative of the Max Huber-Kono Foundation of Chiasso, has been a public institution of the Municipality of Chiasso since 2010 and is member of ICOM (International Council of Museums).
The m.a.x. museo’s mission is to spread the knowledge of graphics, design, photography and contemporary visual communication, forming a bridge between the past and the new generations of graphic artists and designers. Next to the museum there is the Spazio Officina, whose mission is related to that of the m.a.x. museo and has, like the museum, close relations with the territory: from exhibitions to congresses, from performances to concerts, the Spazio Officina offers a varied program that also actively involves cultural associations.
Near the m.a.x. museum and the Spazio Officina there are the Cinema Teatro and the Library. The four buildings constitute the new and important Centro Culturale Chiasso (Chiasso Cultural Centre), characterized by exhibitions and theatre proposal of international scope.
The m.a.x. museo is part of the Network Musei d'arte Mendrisiotto (MAM).
