The Graphics Museum in Pisa

The collections of the Graphics Museum (Museo della Grafica) are now on display in Palazzo Lanfranchi

Pisa
Palazzo Lanfranchi is one of the oldest and most illustrious noble Pisan homes which used to belong to one of the most powerful aristocratic and political families in the city. The members of the Lanfranchi family were among Pisa’s ruling elite, even during the time of Florentine domination. The building was bought and renovated by the family in 1539. The City of Pisa took possession of the building in 1952 and carried out its own renovation and restoration work between 1976 and 1980.The museum was created in 1958 by Carlo Ludovico Ragghianti and consists of a collection of contemporary graphic works of art. The collection has been displayed as part of various national and international exhibitions. Today, the museum also offers visitors the chance to consult a substantial bibliographic archive which documents the period between the 1950s and 1960s. The museum has four main areas: the Sebastiano Timpanaro collection which was donated in 1957; works donated by individual artists; a series of drawings donated by the Calcografia Nazionale di Roma and the Giulio Carlo Argan collection (600 works of art including etchings and drawings).
