The Museo Michelangiolesco in the Caprese Fortress has a section with wood and bronze sculptures from the second half of the twentieth century. T

The collection was started in 1969 and was expanded through gifts and acquisitions above all in 1975, when the sculpture competition for the 5th centenary of the birth of Michelangelo was held. Some pieces, including those by Antonio Berti, Cecco Buonanotte and Iorio Vivarelli, are on show in the Sculpture Garden; most, however, are on show in the main room of the Corte Alta building; they are by sculptors such as Pericle Fazzini, Ferruccio Ferrazzi, Emilio Greco, Quinto Martini, and Vittorio Tavernari.
In 2006, the museum was expanded with the addition of a collection donated by Enrico Guidoni dedicated to small nineteenth-century Italian sculptures with work by Medardo Rosso and Umberto Boccioni.
