The Gallery of Modern Art in Palazzo Pitti (Florence) houses works that have played a key role in the Italian artistic production from the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth century.
The collection began as an assortment of the best works from the competitions of the Academy of Arts and Design, and was later enriched by several collections, both civic and private.
Located on the second floor of the imposing Palazzo Pitti, the Gallery of Modern Art offers its visitors a wonderful wonderful view of the Boboli Gardens.
The interiors, once inhabited by the Lorraine family , are richly decorated and adorned with neo-classical and romantic works.
The rooms of the museum have hosted up to the Thirties the representatives of the Savoia royal family during their visit in Florence.
Upon booking you can visit the apartments of the Duchess of Aosta, with the original furnishings that belonged to the Savoia family.
The museum offers an overview of Italian painting between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries, with a prestigious collection of paintings and works of the Macchiaioli, as well as of Boldini, Dupré, Morandi, De Pisis, De Chirico and futurist avant-garde works.
Over the years the collection has been enriched by precious private donations.
