Museo Discoteca: Italy’s first disco museum to open in Riccione

Italy’s first disco museum, Museo Discoteca (MUDI), is set to open in Riccione on May 19. 

Located in the iconic pyramid-shaped Cocoricò music venue, MUDI will offer a blend of visual art and music, combining performance, design, and sound across various spaces.

The museum will feature contemporary artworks that promise to turn every night into a cultural experience stimulating both the mind and senses, according to a press release.

The grand opening will include a “sensory performance” by musician and designer Filippo Sorcinelli titled ‘Ciao Sex’ in Cocoricò’s unique bathroom. 

The Salò collective will present a performance combining noise, avant-rock, and psychedelia, while erotic brand MySecretCase will provide a mix of sexual education and live entertainment.

Films and documentaries by La Furia Film, Sunset Productions, and Francesco Tavella will be shown in the T-Room, followed by a live poster art exhibition from Sara Leghissa in the Pyramid’s corridors. Animation group Collettivo Colore will take over a secret room, culminating in a “grand finale” in the main room featuring Italian ballroom culture with voguing, a runway, and lip-sync battles.

After the opening event, MUDI will continue to display nearly 30 works by prominent Italian artists, both visual and musical. A digital exhibition will also be launched, extending the museum’s reach into the virtual realm. This summer, Cocoricò will host performances by Ricardo Villalobos, Deborah De Luca, Amelie Lens, and others.
