The history of the City of Florence Twentieth-Century Art Collections began in 1907, when the Società Leonardo da Vinci, acting through Ugo Ojetti and the company Chair Francesco Gioli, addressed a formal petition for the establishment of a Gallery of Modern Art in Florence.
It would be inaugurated in Palazzo Pitti in 1914. The diffident stance of Ojetti towards any artistic experimentation not aligned with the Tuscan figurative culture encouraged the development of the collections in the name of continuity. In the second half of the twentieth century, Carlo Ludovico Ragghianti strove to link artistic legacies and contemporary art collections to Florence “in the hope that the city did not close in on itself or circumscribe into an archaeological cabotage”, to qualify instead as a “hub of contemporary artistic life”. The dramatic flood of 1966 would be a seminal moment to give the right momentum to the project of Museo Internazionale di Arte Contemporanea, an institution being different from and complementary to Galleria d’Arte Moderna. In February 1967, the Artisti per Firenze exhibition, curated by Ragghianti in Palazzo Vecchio, testified to the artists’ generous response to the appeal for the creation of MIAC, till the opening of Alberto Della Ragione Collection to the public in 1970. This complex and exciting season of relaunches and setbacks, acquisitions and missed opportunities is reconstructed here until the birth of Museo Novecento, with the first museum project in 2014.
