Forte Belvedere, Firenze

The ‘Alberto Della Ragione’ collection

Noteworthy examples of XX century art

This interesting museum, established in 1970, was originally hosted in Piazza dell Signoria. In 2001 it was transferred to Forte Belvedere’s Palazzina. The collection’s main nucleus is made up of 241 works of art which were donated by collector Alberto Della Ragione in 1970. This series was created to showcase donations made by the collector; they represent Italian art created between the two world wars. Later, the collection was enhanced by other groups so to include additional examples of twentieth century art. These collections include a series donated by the heirs of Ottone Rosai and a collection left to the University of Florence by the heirs of Palazzeschi, an Italian writer. Art lovers won’t want to miss viewing several noteworthy works including canvases by Carrà, Casorati, De Chirico, De Pisis, Fontana, Guttuso, Mafai, Morandi, Rosai, Scipione and Sironi. Important sculptures include pieces by Manzù, Marini and Martini.
