From a place of slaughter to a gentle cradle for contemporary art. The Calasetta Contemporary Art Museum (MACC) on Sant'Antioco Island is based in the town's ex-slaughterhouse, which lay abandoned for more than 40 years before recently being renovated and converted to an art gallery.The "conversion" was overseen by ErmannoLeinardi (1933-2006), the founder (1966) together with ItaloUtzeri, Ugo Ugo and ToninoCasula, Sardinian artist from the GruppoTransnazionale, dedicated to experimenting and sharing Sardinian artistic research with the rest of Europe.
