, also known as Palazzo Rosselmini Gualandi, is owned by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Pisa
. It was closed for some time to restore the ‘as blue as the air’ façade. The Museum of Art and Culture
(Museo d'arte e cultura) is housed in a series of buildings which cover around four thousand square metres in the centre of the city, between Lungarno Gambacorti, via Toselli, piazza dei Facchini and via delle Belle Donne.The heart of the complex is a palazzo which was built on sixteenth century foundations, although the building was renovated in the mid-nineteenth century. It stands out for its brightly coloured façade which was done using the ‘A fresco’ technique
which was popular at the time when the restoration work was carried out.
The museum is home to over three hundred works of art from the collections of the Cassa di Risparmio di Pisa
which were bought in order to document the artistic heritage of the territory. The paintings on display here date from between the fourteenth and twentieth centuries and include works by artists such as Cecco di Pietro, Nino Pisano and Benozzo Gozzoli.
There are also numerous graphic works. The museum also houses several Etruscan, Roman and Hellenistic archaeological finds.Opening hours
