“An offense to Art”

Museo D'Arte Moderna Vittoria Colonna
Ranked #29 of 98 things to do in Pescara
Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The building is among the poorest example of bad architecture and so is the interior which is very badly kept.
We have visited the latest exhibition of the Cascella's , among the most renewed painters from Abruzzo , paying a ticket of eur 6,00 / person ( Galleria Borghese in Rome with permanent shows of Bernini , Caravaggio etc etc costs 12,00 eur - Rijks Museum with permanent shows of Vermeer , Rembrandt , van Hals etc etc costs 15,00 eur ) to soon realize how un-professional the exhibit had been mounted and in what a mediocre way it was lightened.
the rooms wall are filled with holes from previous exhibitions , the doors which have access to private areas , storage , electric panels are left open so that overall reigns a sense of run down disinterest about the building and the arts in general.

even though the Cascella's work , to my eyes were not more that any "sunday painters " i think that being among the most prestigious artist ever this region had , the museum , if can be so called , should find a reason to stay open and to work hard in order to promote arts and culture in this otherwise dull beach town.

There are regular exhibitions going on here but even if "big names" on show seem to attract you, pieces shown are of much lesser importance than you would think. Warhol was shown here, the show was rather big but all the pieces were brought in by private parties who just set up the show to gain visibility and of course in order to increase the value of their pieces.
There is also a permanent show (just one small room) of some modern art but of really lesser importance.
