GAMC – Viareggio’s Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art

Just 1.5 kilometres from Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte we find the Municipal Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art of Viareggio, also called GAMC, one of the sites of greatest cultural interest of the entire city and an authentic must for all art lovers on holiday in Versilia.

The Gallery is housed inside the historical Palazzo delle Muse and was built starting in 1861 thanks to the contributions of numerous artists.
Artists who, of course, are still the undisputed protagonists of a space that lets us admire a vast collection with over 3,000 artworks by about 750 artists who have marked the history of art over the course of the 20th century.

Among the artworks on display are those of Lorenzo Viani, exponent of European Expressionism who here has the largest collection thanks to the presence of 85 works acquired in 1979.
Lovers of the Viareggio artist will be able to admire, among others, the ‘Benedizione dei morti del mare’ (Blessing of the dead of the sea), which is considered by everyone to be his true masterpiece, the ‘Volto Santo’ (Holy Face), his only sculpture entitled ‘Testa di pazza’ (Head of crazy woman), in addition to 17 woodcut matrices.

Of course, there are also tributes to the location of Versilia thanks to the presence of artworks by numerous local artists having as their subject the landscapes of the territory.
Alongside the permanent collections, you can appreciate the dynamism of the GAMC through the temporary exhibitions dedicated to contemporary art organized at every time of the year.
Finally, we would like to underline the attention of the Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery toward the younger generations with the creation of itineraries, educational workshops, and guided tours.

Reaching the GAMC from Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte is extremely easy.

You can do so by following three different walking routes, all more or less the same length, going through Viale Michelangelo Buonarroti or Viale Giosuè Carducci or Viale Guglielmo Marconi.
In just over 15 minutes of a pleasant walk you arrive at the Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art.
