Palazzo Blu in Pisa is located on Lungarno Gambacorti near the church of Santa Cristina. The Palace was named “Blue” due to the color of the plastering and the museum center that occupies the interior spaces. The BLU - Center of Art and Culture is responsible for enhancing the building of early medieval origin. The Palace houses the collection of the Cassa di Risparmio Foundation which includes the masterpieces of Benozzo Gozzoli, Orazio Gentileschi, Artemisia Gentileschi, Taddeo di Bartolo, Luigi Gioli, Fortunato Bellozzi and many others. Also part of the exhibition are the works from the Simoneschi Collection which includes a vast number of antiquities and woodcuts, etchings and lithographs by Giuseppe Viviani. Of great interest are the perfectly preserved eighteenth-century style decorations, period furniture and furnishings. Since 2015 it is also possible to visit the basement of the building where the objects found during the restorations are exhibited. The Palace is now used for exhibitions and temporary exhibitions of twentieth-century and contemporary artists.
