Vittoria Colonna Museum of Modern Art

The Vittoria Colonna Museum of Modern Art is located in the center of the city of Pescara and on its seafront. The Museum was founded in 2002 inside the building built in the 1950s to a design by the rationalist architect Eugenio Montuori. The Museum is dedicated to Vittoria Colonna, Marquise of Pescara and a friend of Michelangelo. The museum collection is mostly composed of contemporary works by the most famous artists of the artistic world, including: Joan Mirò, Renato Guttuso, Basilio Cascella, Pablo Picasso, Gaston Orellana, Mario Tozzi and Arturo Carmassi. The first nucleus of the collection was established following a “Gangai - Stoppato” donation with works by Carrà, Guidi, Manzù, Brindisi, Bueno and Calabria. Other significant donations are by the artist Giuseppe Misticoni, with his paintings, and by Benini and the painting by the Macchiaioli painter Ulisse Pichi. The Museum has a "Free Trade Shelf" inside, a space for free consultation and exchange of books among citizens of all ages. The Museum is home to temporary exhibitions and cultural events. Furthermore, a room is available for conferences, study meetings and concerts.
