ARCA – Exhibition centre

Start your journey to discover the amazing masterpieces and art treasures housed in the museums of Valsesia and the Vercelli area: unique testimonies to the cultural, social and historical life of the area.

Arca – Exhibition centre

Located in the central aisle of St. Mark’s Church, “Arca” is an ultra modern glass and steel structure. This innovative parallelepiped has by now become one of the city’s symbols, as well as a “stylistic icon” of the intention and ability to combine both ancient and the contemporary. The structure’s crystal vaults allow visitors to admire the medieval and majestic vaults of St. Mark’s. In turn, the former church is returning, for the pleasure of Vercelli’s residents and tourists alike, the marvellous hidden 15th century frescoes unveiled by the young restorers of the Venaria Reale Conservation and Restoration Centre. It is an events and exhibition venue. The most important include the exhibitions in collaboration with the Guggenheim Foundation, “The Renaissance of Gaudenzio Ferrari” and the one dedicated to the Magna Charta and the 800th anniversary of St. Andrew’s Abbey.
