Rome’s Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna (National Gallery of Modern Art) was created in 1883 to house the newly unified Italian state’s contemporary works of art. The gallery was originally located in the Palazzo delle Esposizioni until 1915. The collections were then moved to the Palace of Fine Arts, where works of contemporary and modern Italian art are still on display.
The museum’s collection includes over 5,000 paintings and sculptures, including works of art dating from the neoclassical period to the abstract works from the 1960s.
The permanent exhibitions, housed in enormous halls, are very interesting and include works of art by renowned artists.
The ground floor is dedicated to the nineteenth century, where visitors can find works by Paul Cezanne, Antonio Canova, Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh.
The top floor, on the other hand, is devoted to twentieth century art, including Futurist, Cubist, Dadaist and abstract art movements.
