Blue Palace of Pisa is located on the river bank Gambacorti near the church of Santa Cristina. The palace was named "Blue" because of the color and plastering of the museum that occupies the interior spaces. The BLU - Center of Art and Culture is responsible for enhancing the early medieval palace. The Palace houses the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio collection including masterpieces by Benozzo Gozzoli, Orazio Gentileschi, Artemisia Gentileschi, Taddeo di Bartolo, Luigi Gioli, Fortunato Bellozzi and many others. It also displays works from the Collection Simoneschi which includes a large number of antiquities and woodcuts, etchings and lithographs by Giuseppe Viviani. Of great interest it is the perfectly preserved eighteenth-century-style decor, the furniture and the antique furnishings. From 2015 you can also visit the underground of the building where the objects found during the restorations are exposed. The Palace is now used for exhibitions and temporary exhibitions of artists of the twentieth century and Contemporary.
