Brief History The Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, established in 1883 for the purpose of documenting the living art is nowadays a museum with two souls, just like two are the centuries it deals with: the 19th and the 20th. Its important collections in fact, on the one hand mirror the cultural events of the unitary Italian State also with their international reflections, on the other hand they are the great historical reserve of the Italian contemporary art system. More information can be found at the GNAM official website
The Collections The birth of the Gallery dates back to 1883, at the time when the newly united state of Italy was put in the hands of the fundamental institutions of the state, a well timed event resulting in the development and attention toward national art. The works, acquired from the large collection of the international Biennale of Venezia, focusing on: Verism, Symbolism, Decadentismo Neorinascimentale, with a hint of Secessioni. In the 70s and 80s, the politics of acquisitions are at times integrated instead as part of the pre-unification 1800s (the romantic and pure history with examples of Palagi, Koch, Gastaldi, Ciseri, and Franchi) and promptly received a series of donated works of Italian masters of the 20th century (Balla, De Chirico and Guttuso, among others).
At the end of 1997 Minister Veltroni allocated space for the new location of Museo MAXXI, dedicated in general to the collection of the work of current artists. The area chosen was on Via Flaminia near the auditorium of Renzo Piano: the destination represents the cultural center of the 21st century, continuing from that of the 20th century of the valley or Park of Museums on Valle Giulia. The National Gallery of Modern Art therefore gained the status of Mother museum for the 19th and 20th centuries. For more information please click here:
