Opened in June 2014 and dedicated to the twentieth-century Italian art, the Novecento Museum offers a selection of around 300 works, owned by the Comune of Florence or given on loan, displayed over 15 exhibition areas, in addition to a room for conferences and screenings, and 18 multimedia access points distributed along the path.
The artworks are arranged in reverse chronological order and following a thematic and interdisciplinary setup. The core collections of greatest interest are the prestigious Alberto Della Ragione Collection and the large group of works that arrived after the 1966 flood in Florence, when Carlo Ludovico Ragghianti launched a call for the creation of an International Museum of Contemporary Art.
The Museum project creates a historical tale that links the civic collections to the history of the city from the 1990s to the beginning of the century, and also integrates the heritage with testimonies of national and international artistic events that took place in the region in the last 40 years of the century.
