Italian art of the 20th century

Museo Novecento in Florence is dedicated to Italian art of the 20th century. Around 300 paintings, sculptures, videos, and installations take the visitor back from the 1990s to the beginning of the 1900s.

The collection, spread out over 15 exhibition areas, is displayed in a chronologically, thematically and interdisciplinary way, combining artworks with multimedia experiences. The third floor shows clips of movies filmed in Florence, covering 50 years of film history.

Museo Novecento is located at the Piazza Santa Maria Novella, opposite to the Basilica, in the Ospedale di San Paolo, a 13th century hospice for pilgrims that was transformed into a school in the 18th century. The same building also houses the Museo nazionale Alinari della fotografia (MNAF).
