San Giovanni Valdarno

According to archival research conducted by Prof. Ugo Procacci, the early-Renaissance artist Masaccio passed a great deal of his young life in this house. The building was acquired by the city in the 1960s and renovated in the 1970s as an exhibit space.

The museum houses the permanent collections of the city, including the collection of modern and contemporary art which has been accumulated over the years through the various editions of the Masaccio Painting Prize. In recent years the house has focused its exhibits on an exploration of emerging art and artists in Italy and Europe.

The permanent collection includes works by Alighiero Boetti, Alberto Moretti, Giovanni Anselmo, Alberto Garutti, Marco Airò and Massimo Bartolini.

Opening hours:

Tuesday-Friday: 3pm-7pm
