National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art and Museum, Rome

The palace of the gallery was built in 1911 by Cesare Bazzani, and enlarged in 1933. It contains the most important in Italy collection of 19th-20th century Italian art, founded in 1883. It was slowly reconstructed and rearranged. At present it's been completely reopened.

The National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art and Museum (Galleria Nazionale D'Arte Moderna & Museo) is today a museum with two hearts.

The first is the Museum's connection to the past. Its cultural history is intertwined with that of the Italian State which achieved complete political unity only in 1870 with the establishment of Rome as its capital. The first half of the 19th Century was a period of great political and cultural ferment and this is the foundation upon which the Museum stands.

On the other hand the Museum, since its founding in 1883, has always looked to the present. It's mission being to represent "living" art.
