Madrid currently has a great cultural importance throughout Europe, mainly thanks to the activity of the past 30 years. Art is one of the reasons for many tourists visit, because there is the so-called triangle of art or golden triangle, which are the museums in Madrid are located in the area of the Paseo del Prado, old Mall that marks the boundary between the old city and the Retiro Park. The three vertices of the triangle are: the Museum del Prado, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Museo Reina Sofia, which together attracted 5.3 million visits in 2008. The designation of the area of the Prado as a triangle of art was initially suggested by the press, and then assumed by the cultural authorities, following the opening of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in 1992. To visit these museums a good option is to rent an apartment in Madrid, since you have to reserve more than one day to see the three museums: Museo Reina Sofia: the opening of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in 1990 meant the creation of a Museum of modern art and contemporary in Spain at international level, although few have been the vicissitudes suffered by the building up to that end.

The program of the Museum Reina Sofia revolves around two reflections. The first, to rethink the role and Constitution of the Museum in contemporary times. The second, ask ourselves whether there is an alternative to the historical models of this institution, the modern Museum, emerged in the 1920s to represent a linear and exclusionary, history or postmodernism, raised in the mid 1980s as absorption of confrontation and dissent in a new globalized territory. The Museum is not conceived as the institution that exhibits a universal knowledge, identity and exclusionary, but as a place capable of generating new interstitial spaces of sociality and discussion in the public sphere.
