The Museo Novecento is dedicated to 20th-century art, presenting a selection of works from the civic collections which focuses on Italian art of the first half of the 20th century. One of the more well known collections is the Alberto Della Ragione collection, donated to the city of Florence in the aftermath of the 1966 flood. The museum also features artworks by Giorgio De Chirico, Filippo De Pisis, Gino Severini, Giorgio Morandi, Mario Mafai, and many others. The museum is completed with the exhibition of the legacy of Ottone Rosai, donated by his widow Francesca Fei and his brother Oreste to the Municipality of Florence.
In addition to the permanent collection, the temporary exhibitions and the program of the Cinema and Conferences Room enrich the activity of the museum with a thematic and multidisciplinary approach.
This modern museum breaks up the traditional exhibits in many other museums in Florence. This is also a very new museum, considering it opened in the summer of 2014. Take a break from the traditional art to focus on more modern works at Museo Novecento.
