This magnificent palace was built in the first half of the 18th century, designed by the architect Romano Sebastiano Cipriani, as a residence of the patrician Colicola family. Today, it is the host of the equally magnificent museum of contemporary arts, probably the best one...More

Pluses certainly include a magnificent room done by Sol Lewitt. In fact just this is worth the visit. The sculptures and paintings by Alexander Calder are of course brilliant. The misses include some rather ugly sculptures and the 60 or 70 steps to get yo...More

A very beautiful distraction from the Spoleto heat. Quiet, fill on 3 floors with an amalgamation of art. The top floor vast in space is filled with world artists for the Spoleto 2 World Festival. Roberta Pizzorno art a particular favourite... Quiet, serenity, distinctive and...More

We went here because I wanted to see the inside of the building. Some parts OK, some not so much. The art wasn't exactly my glass of wine. Not sure what you would call it, modern, interpretive, different. I'm sure that someone with a more...More

We visited the palace during a cold day of January. It was a pleasant seeing especially for the big windows behind the building and the sun filtering inside on the pictures and installations exposed.

I was looking forward to some modern art after seeing far too many religious paintings for my taste in Umbria. Sadly, this collection did not impress. Further, half of the collection seemed to be on loan to other museums. Staff were rude and made me...More

We have visited this nice museum and were impressed with the palace, the setting and the interesting art presented there. Yet, were utterly amazed and frankly shocked, to see some works of an Italian artist showing Israeli acts against Palestinians with more than a hint...More

I like art. I like modern art. I like contemporary, wacky, paint-spatters-on-the-wall art. But this place is just bad and boring. Even if you have tons of time to kill and one of those "all museums in Spoleto" tickets, don't spend your caloric energy walking...More

Found the modern art section to be very basic and uninteresting. I would not waste my money visiting again. The teenagers laughed that several bits of art could have been done by someone in kindergarten .... or worse... Their own mother. The first floor, with...More

As this is a modern art museum(usually not my thing), I kept it until the end of my stay. But I was very pleasantly surprised. The modern art is varied and interesting(a whole room by Sol Lewitt !), the museum also has the city ancient...More
