Civic Museum

The Civic Museum, occupying four adjacent rooms on the side of the cloister facing the street, houses 19th and 20th century works of art from the civic collection. An important school of painting grew up in Colle at the turn of the 19th century around the figure of Antonio Salvetti, an artist of many talents who had a profound impact on the figurative arts in 20th century Colle. Other leading players on the Colle scene in those years included Vittorio Meoni and Ferruccio Manganelli, in addition to Mino Maccari who, as we can see from his Landscape on display here, was still painting in the style of Cézanne in 1924, at about the same time as the first copies of Il Selvaggio were seeing the light of day.
