If, like me, you sometimes want a break from Renaissance Madonna and child paintings, stop by LUCCA which hosts interesting modern and contemporary art exhibits. We saw an exhibition of a group of Italian painters called the macchiaioli, who wanted to break away from religious painting and portray everyday life--basically Italian impressionism. It was well curated with a lot of... More

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

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
