Luigi Bailo Museum
The Museum named after Luigi Bailo is the oldest of the current civic museums, built in the spaces of an ancient convent of Renaissance origin articulated around two cloisters. Closed to the public in 2003, it has undergone major renovations and refurbishments that have completely changed its face, returning to the city in October 2015 an entirely new museum in terms of architecture and fittings.
Today it houses the Galleria del Novecento , an important anthology with about 340 works from the second half of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century, whose leitmotif is represented by the important collection of Arturo Martini (1889-1947), recognized as one of the greatest European sculptors of the twentieth century. Also on display is a significant anthology of the contemporary painter Gino Rossi .
The structure is equipped with all the services of an accessible and functional museum. The first distinctive element of the building is the architecture, rethought in the façade and in the interior spaces, but also in the external square, an "urban atrium" in which the design of the façade is projected.
The museum itinerary proceeds in a chronological sense, between the first floor and the ground floor, offering the opportunity for unprecedented comparisons and relationships.
