Livorno hosts many Tuscan painting from the XIX and XX centuries

The Civic Museum Giovanni Fattori is located in the splendid Villa Mimbeli of Livorno and has a rich collection of local art, like the works of Enrico Pollastrini, a romantic artist still tied to the academy, the highly expressive works of Fattori and other prominent exponents of the Macchiaioli school and of the Postmacchiaioli movement.

The ground floor and the first floor of the villa keep intact the nineteenth-century style with its decorations, furnishings and curtains. Here works by artists such as Guglielmo Micheli, Ulvi Liegi, Oscar Ghiglia, Giovanni Bartolena and Mario Puccini are displayed.
