The Galleria Comunale di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Viareggio (GaMC) is set up in the historical Palazzo delle Muse, built in the second half of the XIX century from the florentine Comitato degli Ospizi marini and so calledbecause the money for the building were collected through the donations and works of the artists . The collection, derived from donations and acquisitions, actually is formed by more than 3000 works of about 750 artists masters of the art of the XX century. Very important is the nucleus of the graphic art.
There is a significant presence of works of local artists or of artists who were variously tied with this land, as Galileo Chini, and of works that depict local landscapes.
The GaMC has the most important public collection of works of the painter of Viareggio Lorenzo Viani, original exponent of the European Expressionism.
 
Historycal news

The permanent collection of the Galleria Comunale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Viareggio (GaMC) is formed by works derived from donations of private owners.
The first nucleus was created in 1979 when the town council bought 50 works of Lorenzo Viani of the Varraud Santini collection that, together with others bought or part of donations, are today the most important public collection of works of the painter, master of the Expressionism.
A strong impulse to the creation of the museum was given from the Lucarelli donation, 45 works of important Italian masters of the XX century (Renato Guttuso, Carlo Carrà, Giorgio De Chirico, Felice Casorati).
 The Pieraccini donation , with about 2300 works (drawings, pictures, sculptures) started once for all the birth of the GaMC at Palazzo delle Muse. The acquisition of the Pieraccini collection is an opening to the international panorama of the art of the XX century, represented especially by graphic works. In the museum is possible to admire too the works of the donations of Moses and Levy, of Renato Santini and of Uberto Bonetti. In the new preparation of the GaMC  people can admire the works of some of the most important artists of contemporary art through the donations of these collectors.
