The paradox is that the collection ends around about 1920 and contains very view memorable paintings: a few Fattori's and a couple of works by Sisley. Overall a very disappointing collection, particularly the way the paintings are not lit to their best advantage. The admission...More

To my mind modern art started with the Impressionists from around 1870 on. Though the artworks here are magnificent they basically finish around 1850. So if you’re looking for proper modern art you might be disappointed. But the paintings are displayed in such magnificent surroundings...More

It may be called "modern" but unfortunately it is NOT modern enough, if you want to see real modern art, I'd recommend the contemporary art museum in Rome for sure.
