Gallery of Modern Art of Florence

At the Palazzo Pitti you can find the Gallery of Modern Art, with 2000 exhibits displayed along more than 30 rooms of the palazzo’s second floor. These rooms were formerly inhabited by the Lorraine grand-dukes and have been restored in line with the original decoration, so the upholstering and furniture creates the perfect atmosphere for the artworks, many of which belong to the same period. The origin of the collection comes from the Florentine academy in 1748, it was created with the intention of holding the price-winners in the academy’s competition but in the 1922 the paintings were moved to the Palazzo Pitti and it became a national museum.
