Your Experience

The Palazzo Merulana, a former Health Department building, was converted to a museum to house ninety works of the Roman school and the Italian twentieth century, with a focus towards the contemporary. Here you can see masterpieces by Giacomo Balla, Mario Sironi, Giorgio De Chirico, Antonio Donghi, Mario Mafai, Antonietta Raphaël and Giuseppe Capogrossi.

Within the collection, a privileged part is reserved to the Roman School Art (the first nucleus of works collected, around which the rest of the collection has been formed), that depict the Italian scenario of that period with a peculiar vivacity and variety of expressions, constituting perhaps the most solid and experimental nucleus of that age. The Cerasi spouses were aware of the constant dialogue operating between the artists at that time, so they enriched the initial core of the collection with a series of works from other Italian scenarios of the same period, even if they were still guided by their personal taste. In this way, they created a homogeneous collection in which masterpieces from other schools and currents emerge. This museum is a treat for art lovers and fans of modern art of all ages, who can glimpse into the recent past of the art world with a visit here.
