Palazzo Collicola

Palazzo Collicola, one of Spoleto’s most important noble buildings, is nowadays home to an art collection on two different exhibiting levels.

The Noble Apartment at the first floor is a remarkable sample of 18th-century noble residence, maintaining most of its original splendour. Recently re-organized and furnished with valuable pieces of furniture, including part of the original ones, it hosts a picture gallery featuring paintings dating to the 16th/19th centuries, among which the famous Spezieria by the School of Guercino, and a Still-Life by the Master of Hartford.
The apartment hosts contemporary art exhibitions all year round, thus creating an interesting mix of ancient and contemporary.

The Modern Art Gallery Giovanni Carandente is at the second floor, it gathers paintings and sculptures by the most important, 20th-century Italian and international artists. Organized in 18 halls, it features works by Calder, Pepper, Moore, Smith, Pomodoro, Burri, Consagra, Pascali, Accardi, LeWitt, that make it one of the most important contemporary art collections in Italy

Giovanni Carandente Library
The Biblioteca Giovanni Carandente, located at the Piano Nobile of Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts, is a collection of more than 30,000 volumes, that make it one of the most important modern and contemporary art research spaces in Italy.
It bears the name of the famous art critic, who accumulated monographies, catalogues, periodicals, as well as a huge archival documentation and works of art throughout his life. A photographic library, the Leoncillo Leonardi Archives and the Spoleto Prize Archives are also remarkable.
