The Pinacoteca, which opened in 2006, has work purchased by the Comune through the “Città di Civitella” prize for painting which went national from the mid-seventies, attracting not only Tuscan artists but those from Veneto Friuli and Lombardy in particular.
The prize is still held every two years and since 1976 it alternates with the sculpture show (S)oggettivamente when the town centre is turned into an open air sculpture museum where visitors can view works by the likes of Salvatore Cipolla, Marcello Guasti and Iorio Vivarelli.
The museum documents a large cross-section of post-war artistic languages, from figurative to abstract, thanks also to major donations.
