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...

We have been stunned by the Lucca Center of Contemporary Art. Last year we were totally surprised to see the Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibition, which was well presented and beautifully displayed. It was the kind of major photography exhibition that you might expect to find in London, New York, Paris, or Rome - but in Lucca?! What a wonderful opportunity it... More

I accompanied a friend to this exhibit and absolutely enjoyed it. I hadn't heard of this photographer before, but his work is fascinating. Plus, with the tickets, we got to go to the lower level where there was an excavation and paintings of the Lucchesi wall. This was my favorite art that I've seen in Lucca yet.

It's really small - but if the artists showing is someone you enjoy, it's worth a visite. It's will not take very long, but there is a nice cafe on the ground floor.

Small, cold, not communicative, not suitable to Lucca. Possibly better placed in Milan...Everything is very modern fashionable, trendy. But definitely not in the style of the city hosting the "museum". Picture exhibition definitely poor.
