The Temporary Museum Torino – currently a wide spread, traveling museum – was established in 2013 as an offshoot of BasicGallery, BasicNet Group’s historical archive, and an instance of virtuous collaboration between private business and public institutions: Regione Piemonte and Museo Regionale di Scienze Naturali, who needed to find new venues to house part of their extensive collections. Until 2017 it was based in a 700 sq. mt. open space on the ground floor of corso Verona 15/c, and two years later it became a private institution dedicated to the IT Revolution (1975-1985): a Californian cultural movement that has irrevocably changed the way we work, communicate and live. The project was fueled by BasicNet founder and President Marco Boglione’s passion for IT, the foundation of the Group’s business model, which created the first Marketplace in the clothing industry. Temporary Museum Torino owns one of the most important and complete collections of retro computers worldwide: the machines behind the History of the IT Revolution. The “Holy Graal” of the collection is an Apple-1, the first computer created by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs in 1976, purchased by Boglione at a Christie’s auction in 2010: the only one that also includes its original kit in the world. Since 2018 Temporary Museum Torino has curated cultural studies in Italy, Brazil (San Paolo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia) and the US. For this latest endeavour Marco Boglione was awarded by the US Congress and the state of California «a special recognition for inspiring and creating the exhibition Homage to the Information Technology Revolution» (Cupertino, June 2019-June 2020).
