The Contemporary Art Museum in Stia is housed in a twelfth century building which once belonged to the counts Guidi. The building was completely renovated in Medieval style by Giuseppe Castellucci in 1908. The museum was created to promote modern art in this small town at the foot of the mountain, and to provide a worthy home for the work of contemporary artists. All the artists whose work is displayed either come from Tuscany or live in the region.

The pieces which made up the museum’s original collection are 53 paintings and 10 sculptures donated by Vicky Galati Indelli in memory of her father, Americo Francesco Galati. The collection has grown over the years thanks to various artists who have donated works to the Town Council for the museum.
