The museum

The Museo di Arte Contemporanea e del Novecento (Contemporary and 1900s Art Museum) of Monsummano Terme is hosted inside Villa Renatico Martini.
The museum hosts a permanent nucleus of painting, graphic, and sculpture works by local artists (Public Collection) and periodically organises temporary exhibitions and events.
Among the works in the Museum, there are the ones by Pietro Annigoni, Vinicio Berti, Ferdinando Chevrier, Lamberto Pignotti, Eugenio Miccini, and Ketty La Rocca.

The Park of Villa Renatico Martini

The park seems to be designed with flowerbeds and conceived with an ornamental intent, but also as dendrological collection. In the flat part around the Villa, the garden appears well maintained and with a monumental appearance given by the majestic trees (such as plane, lime, and evergreen oak trees).

Villa Renatico Martini

Villa Martini, now the property of the Town Council, stands on the road that climbs up to the castle, just outside the town, in an area known as Renatico.

Ferdinando Martini had it built in around 1887 on a design by the architect Cesare Spighi in the eclectic taste in vogue in Tuscany in the second half of the 19th century.

The public museums of Monsummano obtain the qualification of Important Regional Museum

Another important target achieved for the public museums of Monsummano Terme, the Museo della Città e del Territorio (Museum of the City and Territory) and Museo di arte contemporanea e del Novecento (Contemporary and 1900s Art Museum).

In fact, the two museums have obtained the qualification of "Important Regional Museums" from Tuscany Region in accordance with Regional Law no.

The ceiling and Tuscan painting of the late 1800s

Villa Renatico Martini represents the classic case of monument marked by events that have modified its destination and transformed its function from residence of Ferdinando Martini, literate and politician, into Museo di arte contemporanea e del Novecento (Contemporary and 1900s Art Museum).

Little remains of the original furnishing; as evidence of its past elegance there are the surviving architectonical decorations and the coffer ceilings.
