The Fondazione Torino Musei was founded in 2002 by the Città di Torino in order to supervise the management of municipal museums and art events and exhibitions proposed by the City itself. Since its inception, the four museums of the Fondazione Torino Musei (Palazzo Madama - Museo d'Arte Antica, GAM - Galleria d'Arte Moderna, MAO – Museo d’Arti Orientali, Borgo and Rocca Medievale) have engaged in the fundamental reorganization of exhibition spaces, ranging from essential activity aimed at protecting and implementing collections (now consisting of over 110,000 works), through significant promotional activity to attract more visitors and the progressive realisation of better and more efficient services for the public. The programme of exhibitions has always been packed: curated and realized both in the museum rooms and at external locations, often in collaboration with other cultural institutions. The Fondazione has also been called upon to manage initiatives that aim to bring out the cultural identity and best qualities of the province: examples are  the events Artissima and the Triennale di Arte Contemporanea.

The Fondazione Torino Musei maintains collaborative relationships with local institutions, with the most important museum and cultural organizations in the area and with international museums and institutions.

Since 2002 the Compagnia di San Paolo, through the Historical and Artistic Heritage Area (Area Patrimonio Storico Artistico), contributes to the Foundation with an annual sum for the management and with extra contributions for shows, art events, museum exhibitions and restoration work it promotes. Since 2002 a total of over € 23 million to the organization has been approved.
