Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art information
Udine’s newest museum brings together a number of bequests, creating a substantial collection of 20th-century Italian artists, including De Chirico, Morandi, Campigli and Mušič. There’s also a surprise horde of notable American work, including a Willem de Kooning, Sol LeWitt and Carl Andre, all donated by the artists after the 1976 Friulian earthquake. The gallery itself is a beautiful cultural asset, its bold reconstruction designed by the late Gae Aulenti. Discover intriguing remnants of the 16th-century building's previous lives: spectacular, previously unknown 14th-century frescoes that were uncovered during construction, and the Cavazzini family's 1930s Rationalist apartment, where you can peek at the old-style gym rings in the bathroom and a formal dining room’s intensely hued murals.
