Palazzo Blu, so called for the colour of its façade as it reappeared after restoration, is a cultural centre promoted by the Fondazione Pisa and managed, since 2011, by the Fondazione Palazzo Blu.
The second floor displays a rich collection centred on Pisan art from the Middle Ages to the present day, which the Foundation acquired from the Cassa di Risparmio di Pisa.
The collection has works by twentieth-century artists, Pisan by birth or adoption, which are often shown to the public in small, temporary exhibitions in the three last rooms of the gallery itinerary. Artists include Fortunato Bellonzi, Spartaco Carlini, Ferruccio Pizzanelli, Salvatore Pizzarello, Mino Rosi, Federigo Severini, Umberto Vittorini, and Alessandro Volpi.
In the graphic section is an outstanding core of engravings by Giuseppe Viviani. The scheduled exhibitions also feature the twentieth century, with names of international fame, such as Chagall, Miró, Modigliani, Picasso and Warhol.
