On your next visit, make time to see these five great places for modern art in Rome.
3. Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna
For a taste of Italian art in Rome, visit Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna (National Gallery of Modern Art) – home to one of the largest collections of contemporary Italian art in the world. The museum, which is located at the stunning Villa Borghese, showcases thousands of paintings and sculptures from the last three centuries. Its permanent and temporary exhibitions explore an enormous array of artistic themes, from world and war to light and movement. While for many, the highlights are the works by Italian masters like Umberto Boccioni, Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna also has a dynamic collection of works by some of the international art world’s greatest names, such as Vincent Van Gogh and Jackson Pollock.
4. Pastificio Cerere
Following the lead of many great modern galleries, Pastificio Cerere has taken a redundant space (a former pasta factory) and transformed it into a place where artistic creativity reigns supreme. Located in the San Lorenzo district, the venue offers up-and-coming artists a blank canvas on which to showcase their work, as well as a residency programme for artists and curators living in Italy. A space that is both dynamic and ever changing, this is where many locals come to see cutting edge modern art in Rome.
5. Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Roma Capitale
An art tour of Rome isn’t complete without visiting Galleria d’Arte Moderna di Roma Capitale. The museum specialises in modern and contemporary art from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and displays over 3,000 pieces by some of the most significant artists of the period. As well as exploring masterpieces by the likes of Giulio Aristide Sartorio, Nino Costa and Onorato Carlandi, enthusiasts can explore entire artistic movements such as Symbolism, Realism, Divisionism and Expressionism.
