Museum of Contemporary Art, Revoltella

The Museum of Contemporary Art Revoltella (Museo Revoltella - Galleria d 'Arte Moderna) was founded in honor of Baron Pasquale Revoltella, a wealthy carpenter from Venice, who donated his house with the large collection of artwork and sculptures to the state.

The building of the museum, of the neo-Renaissance period, is a work of art. It is a three-storey palace decorated by the baron, which highlights each piece of the collection in a unique way. It is no coincidence that some of the rooms have remained as they were when the building was inhabited.

Over the years, the collection grew, so now the museum is housed in three buildings, with showrooms covering an area of 4,000 sq.m. The works exhibited in the Museum date mainly from the second half of the 19th century until the early 20th century, giving visitors the opportunity to experience the cultural history of Trieste and Italy. 
If you happen to visit the Museum in the summer, do not forget to take a break and sit at the café with the lovely terrace, located on the top floor.
