Fabroni Palace is located in the center of Pistoia and is home ill Museum of Contemporary Art of the Civic Museums. The Museum was opened in 1997 thanks to private donations and municipal acquisitions of works of contemporary art. They are part of the collection masterpieces of sculpture and painting of the twentieth century. The museum's heritage is of great importance as it passes through the entire period of the avant garde: surrealism, neoclassicism, constructivism, abstract expressionism, minimalism and arte povera. Of historical and artistic significance is reminiscent of the works of Claudio Parmiggiani, Mario Nigro, Fernando Melani, Luciano Fabro, Enrico Castellani, Alfredo Pirri, Vittorio Messina and many others. In 2011 the collection was enriched thanks to the donation of the photographer Aurelio Amendola eleven photographic portraits of artists he produced during his professional career. Among the artists we photographed find Castellani, De Chirico, Kounellis, Marini, Warhol, Burri and Castellani.
