Masterpiece for Lecco

Until 03 March 2024

Municipal Gallery of Contemporary Art and Lecco Mountaineering Observatory

The Palazzo was built in an eclectic neo-medieval style between 1902 and 1905 and until 1964 it was the headquarters of the Intendenza di Finanza, of the Land Registry and of the Customs, therefore it was given the name of Paure. The building was used as a school and then abandoned until a few years ago. Subsequently it was the subject of important restoration and redevelopment works and, following an important museological and museographic project, it was inaugurated in 2012 as a new museum venue. Today Palazzo delle Paure hosts the temporary exhibitions of the Municipal Gallery of Contemporary Art and the Lecco Mountaineering Observatory. The rooms of the Gallery exhibit works by the major contemporary Italian artists (Morlotti, Castellani, Baj, Scanavino, Cavaliere, Rotella, Pomodoro), and others by the most important local artists (Vitali, Stefanoni, Chiappori, Gasparini). On the second floor is the Graphics and Photography Section, where the collections of prints, engravings and photography are cyclically exhibited. The Lecco Alpine Observatory is set up on the third floor.
