MuMART - Underwater Art Museum 0 Comments
MuMART is the first underwater museum of contemporary art. During the last years, the fishermen village of Golfo Aranci refurbished tourist port, ready now to welcome private boats as well as fisherman boats, the real soul of Golfo Aranci. A lovely and easy accessible esplanade goes along the beaches, all the way to the port.
MuMART, the underwater museum, is an absolute must in town. With a superb glass-bottom boat the visitors have the possibility to admire the underwater beauties, and a “real” mermaid entertains the children along the way.
The works of 14 artists, Alex Angi, Renata Boero, Roberto Bricalli, Rimmer Cardillo,Franco Carloni, Emmanuel Chapalain, Bruno Ceccobelli, Santiago Cogorno, Gyula Kosice, Nino Mustica, Peter Nussbaum, Ben Patterson, Rogelio Polesello and Luiso Sturla, have been placed to a depth of 6/7 meters below the sea level. The way the statues have been placed remind of a coil shell shape.
Finally, The Mermaid: an unusual and appealing tourist attraction. It’s a statue, made of bronze (created by the artist Pietro Longu) that twice per day appears from the sea to sing some typical Sardinian songs.
To sum up, Golfo Aranci has everything you need to spend a lovely holiday with all the amenities and services you may need. Moreover, if you are arriving by boat and you have a hotel booked in town, you are entitled to have a free transfer from the port to the accommodation.
Golfo Aranci is designed to be visited even without a car, because everything is within walking distance. This is also a good way to save some money and be eco-friendly with the unique environment of Golfo Aranci.
Several excursions are also available in town: by Bike, with 4x4, Boat, Rubber Dinghy, Yachts or Trekking through the several walking paths of the splendid Capo Figari’s natural reserve.
