The Ernesto Galeffi Museum of Modern Art in Montevarchi was opened in 1996 in the building next to Villa Galeffi, ten years after the artist’s death. All the works of art on display are part of a private collection completely dedicated to the creativity of local artist, Ernesto Galeffi (1917-1986).

The Ernesto Galeffi Museum of Modern Art takes visitors through the various stages of the artist’s creative life. There are 10 paintings, 60 sculptures (bronze, wooden and plaster) and a selection of over 2000 drawings. These works of art take us through the life of one of the most vivacious and extrovert Tuscan artists since the Second World War.
