The Carlo Pepi Collection is located in Crespina, inside Villa Pepi, where the collector amassed thousands of artworks over decades. The collection is focused on the Macchiaioli, their followers and Fattori’s students, but there’s also a section about the first half of the 1900s, for a total of around 10,000 pieces by 1,500 artists.
Some artists are represented here in their entirety, their career traces through their works, like Fattori, who has 700 works in the collection. Lorenzo Viani is also present with 300 pieces, as well as letters and some of his books; the same goes for Giuseppe Viviani.
Exponents of Existentialism are on display, as are classic Florentine abstract artists, the Atoma Group and many others. Furthermore, Pepi collected works by artists like Giovanni March, Marcello Landi, Gianni Bertini, Franco Baroni and Alessandro Volpi.
