We did not know this exhibition was on, so being a fan of his work and our apartment being a few metres away made this a great bonus to our already excellent holiday in Lucca ! The gallery is very well appointed and has some great spaces for the exhibition, friendly staff and a quiet, but not 'stuffy' atmosphere. When... More

Two floors aligned with gorgeous large format black and white photos by Robert Capa. This retrospective exhibit was exceptional, full of may rare photos from WWII including the falling soldier controversial shot. Also shown were some vintage photos of Hollywood celebrities and well known literary characters, as well as scenes of wartime Italy in obscure off the beaten path places.... More

Discovered this exhibit while in Lucca. Although I had seen smaller shows of Capa photography from Madrid to New York, this was the largest retrospective I have seen. The presentation of the photography was excellent. I will add this museum to the list places we will visit when we return to this corner of Tuscany next year.

Lovely small museum. Reasonable entrance fee. Great exhibit. Need I say more? There's also a fine restaurant in the museum which looked nice, although we didn't eat there.

This photographer was photographing war scenes from the Spanish Civil War til Vietnam. Tragically passed way as a result of stepping on land mine in Vietnam.

The centre was largely dedicated to an exhibition of Robert Capa photographs, and some contemporary work. A smallish but well organised gallery.

We were fortunate to come across a Robert Capa retrospective exhibition during our visit to Lucca. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing some of his most famous images as well as many new to us.

Stopped in for a change of pace - and especially to see a wonderful Capa retrospective. Very well presented and a highlight of my trip. The other exhibits were a bit less wonderful though

We were very lucky that there was a wonderful Robert Capa exhibition on when we were in Lucca and this was well-curated. Definitely recommended. The area around the venue is lacking good places to eat (we had been recommended a Sicilian restaurant near by but it wasn't open at lunchtime so had to settle for a quick sandwich). The Center...
