The Gallery, which at the end of the 19th century was housed in the Palazzo delle Esposizioni, is now inside the monumental building built in 1915 by Cesare Bazzani for the retrospective Exhibitions of 1911, organised for the 50th anniversary of the Unification of Italy.
Over the years, the works were collected through large national exhibitions and thanks to gifts and bequests.
Today, it is the only National Museum dedicated entirely to Modern Art, and it contains thousands of works, prints and paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries, leaving the 21st century to the MAXXI, which recently opened in Via Guido Reni. http://www.fondazionemaxxi.it/
