Collezione Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Pistoia e Pescia

COLLEZIONE FONDAZIONE CASSA DI RISPARMIO DI PISTOIA E PESCIA

The halls of Palazzo De’ Rossi house a selection of artworks from Pistoia collected over the years.

The twentieth-century section extends from Mario Nannini’s Futurism to the lyrical formal works by Remo Gordigiani and Aldo Frosini, encompassing the two “schools” that emerged in Pistoia in the course of the century: one in
the aftermath of World War I (with Bugiani, Cappellini and Caligiani, among other artists), the other in the aftermath of World War II (with Barni, Buscioni, Ruffi and Natalini).

Big names naturally include Marino Marini, Gualtiero Nativi with his abstract art, and Mario Nigro with his ‘concretism’. Including both widely known artists and ones of more local fame, the itinerary traces a long journey across the contrasting tendencies of the twentieth century. The collection may easily be visited upon appointment.

MO.C.A. – Montecatini Contemporary Art ?

MO.C.A. - MONTECATINI CONTEMPORARY ART

The exposition halls have recently been arranged in the Palazzo Comunale, an edifice of eclectic style, built in 1913. In the interior, the gallery is located in the spaces of the former Art Nouveau post office, as we are reminded by the message on the glass doors by Galileo Chini.

Here are displayed among other works, Vita [Life], a painting of huge size by Pietro Annigoni from 1957–1960, and Donna avvolta in un volo di uccelli [Woman caught in a flight of birds], a work by Joan Miró from 1980.
This large canvas was donated by the Surrealist Catalan artist to Montecatini on occasion of an exposition arranged by a former Cuban Minister of Culture, Carlos Franqui, a political exile residing in Montecatini.

Accademia d’Arte Fondazione Credito Valdinievole Montecatini Terme

ACCADEMIA D'ARTE FONDAZIONE CREDITO VALDINIEVOLE

Acquired by the banking foundation, the Scalabrino collection presents a conspicuous number of twentieth-century works (over 600 paintings and almost 100 sculptures) intended to redecorate the original seat of the collection, Villa Ortensie, after restoration work has been carried out. For the moment, the collection is shown in rotation in the seat of the bank (Credito Valdinievole) that acquired it in 2011.

The Museo dell’Accademia d’arte Dino Scalabrino was founded in 1963, the work of the then Health Director of the Montecatini thermal baths and Director of the Azienda autonoma di cura e soggiorno, during the golden age of this thermal destination.
The works were donated by artists, gallery proprietors, and visitors who were there in passing. An important polyptych by Galileo Chini comes to mind, now in the repository in the Palazzina delle Terme Reali, besides artists associated with the local area in some way.
