The museum explores the century from the tail end, starting with the 1990s and moving back to the early 1900s to reconstruct the unique era in which Florence stood at the very heart of the national and international culture scene. Arranged along chronological, thematic and interdisciplinary lines, the tour is a fully-fledged sensory experience with multi-media stations, sound bites and video material.

Ytalia. Energy, Thought, Beauty

“Ytalia. Energy, Thought, Beauty” is the new major exhibition of contemporary art promoted by Comune di Firenze and organized by MUS.E. The exhibition will be held in Forte Belvedere and will involve Florence major museums, including the Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens, Santa Croce Church, Museo Novecento and Museo Marino Marini.

“Ytalia” is an ambitious project with the aim to start a dialogue between Florence’s incredible historical and artistical heritage and the art of the Twentieth Century: daily and metaphysical reality, natural elements and new mythologies are the recurring themes of the selected works of art.
An “invasion” in the heart of Renaissance that aims to bring the attention of the international public on the Italian contemporary art.
The exhibition is directed by Sergio Risaliti and curated by Sergio Risaliti and Marco Bazzini.

VITTORIO GIORGINI, ARCHITECT (1926-2010) 16 June – 1 October 2017



A show at various venues throughout the city and more; an occasion not only to rediscover the figure of the Florentine architect Vittorio Giorgini and all that his studies and his work have left to us, but also to rediscover a season abounding in cultural ferment – that of the Florence of the 1950s and 1960s – and its leading figures. Georigini was an outstanding personality in our city’s cultural panorama in the post-WWII years; VITTORIO GIORGINI Architetto (1926-2010), promoted by the Fondazione Architetti Firenze, B.A.Co. – Archivio Vittorio Giorgini, the Association of Architects of Florence, the City of Florence and Mus.e., is devoted to the architect, to his life and his work. The exhibition will range across various venues in the city and in other localities (from the Palazzina Reale to the Museo Novecento and on as far as Baratti (LI),where some of the most significant examples of Giorgini’s work are to be found). Framing the exhibition proper are meetings, lectures, workshops and collateral shows at various sites in Florence and Tuscany, staged in collaboration with the region’s foremost institutions and with international entities.

The Quadrante was one of the most important galleries on the Sixties’ Florentine art scene. And the UN PROGETTO PER L’ARTE / “QUADRANTE” (1961–1964) exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to visit a reconstruction of the gallery space at the Museo Novecento.

The museum admission ticket includes admission to the exhibition.
