A new museum is opening in Florence, a priceless modern and contemporary art collection.


Roberto Casamonti, a private collector, makes available to the city the works brought together by him during years of unconditional love of art, after having found an elegant palace in the old town as its location.

Palazzo Bartolini Salimbeni, a stylish Renaissance building overlooking Santa Trinita square, is now one of the top points of interest in Florence.

The works displayed in Florence thanks to Casamonti are the result of years of research and bear witness to the evolution of art and culture in the twentieth century.

The Collection of Italian and foreign artworks is organised in two large groups: the first one comprises works by artists of the early twentieth century until the early Sixties, the second one, from 1960 to the present day. In Palazzo Bartolini Salimbeni, the Collection will be split into sections, presented in an exhibition, curated by Bruno Corà.

The first collection, from March 24th 2018 and until spring 2019 and, next up, the second one.
So here is From the early twentieth century to the Sixties with masterpieces by Fattori, Boldini, Balla, Viani, Sironi, Severini, Marini, Morandi, de Chirico, Savinio, Prampolini, Casorati, Magnelli, Licini, Picasso, Le Corbusier, Leger, Soutine, Klee, Chagall, Ernst, Kandinsky, Hartung, Fautrier, Matta, Lam, Dorazio, Accardi, Afro, Vedova, Capogrossi, Burri, Klein, Fontana, Castellani, Manzoni, Lo Savio and many others.

The Casamonti Collection, located on the main floor of Palazzo Bartolini Salimbeni, therefore represents an important benchmark for contemporary art in Florence.
