Museo storico della Resistenza di Sant’Anna di Stazzema

MUSEO STORICO DELLA RESISTENZA DI SANT'ANNA DI STAZZEMA

The Museum of the Resistance conserves about 80 works from the second half of the twentieth century, all inspired by the terrible events in Sant’Anna in Stazzema in 1944.

The collection took shape over the course of the years thanks to donations by artists connected to the Apuan and Versilio areas, and with representatives from other parts of Italy (Pietro Annigoni, Gualtiero Nativi, Marco Nereo Rotelli) and abroad (Henry Marinsky).
These are mainly paintings, but there are also some examples of sculptures and installations.

Musei Civici Villa Paolina, Atelier Alfredo Catarsini

MUSEI CIVICI VILLA PAOLINA - ATELIER ALFREDO CATARSINI

After restoration in 1993 the Civic Museum was set up again in the north turret of Villa Paolina — today seat of the Civic Museums of Viareggio — in the studio in which the painter Alfredo Catarsini (1899–1993) had worked for over fifty years, from after the war until his death. Here are conserved works, photographs and documents relative to the artist’s long working life and his links with his home territory.

Catarsini, whose early career grew in the shadow of Modigliani and Viani, met success while still young, thanks to a painting that conveyed the picturesqueness of the Versilia landscape in a fresh twentieth-century language.
He adhered then to the avant-gardist renewal of Italian art in the course of the two periods that he himself called “riflessismo” (reflectionism) and “simbolismo meccanico” (mechanical symbolism).

Museo del Carnevale e Museo Arte Contemporanea Carnevalotto

MUSEO DEL CARNEVALE E MUSEO ARTE CONTEMPORANEA CARNEVALOTTO

The citadel of the Carnival of Viareggio houses within it two museums.

The Museo del Carnevale relates — through documents, sketches, posters and little models — the history of the carnival in Viareggio. Introduced by Burlamacco, a character invented by Umberto Bonettin in 1930, the itinerary presents small models of the allegorical floats, next to the works of artists who have worked for the carnival (Enrico Prampolini, Lucio Venna, Moses Levy, Umberto Bonetti) and reproductions of the advertising posters from 1925 up to the present. The Museo Arte Contemporanea Carnevalotto [Carnevalotto Museum of Contemporary Art], instead, focuses on the Premio Carnevalotto, a prize set up in 1987 by the Carnival Foundation and Studio Saudino to award the best float and designer with works on a theme specially created by Italian and foreign artists, including Sebastian Matta, Pietro Cascella, Piero Dorazio and Joe Tilson.
The two institutions also offer a busy educational programme and a study centre aimed at keeping the records of the event.
