La Galleria Nazionale was founded in Rome in 1883 with the aim of displaying contemporary art from a newly unified Italy. It now boasts an extensive collection of art ranging from the late 19th century to the year 2000, while 21st-century art is shown at the city’s MAXXI museum. Highlights include works by Italian masters such as Giorgio de Chirico, Alberto Burri and Luciano Fontana and those influenced by Italy such as Man Ray and Cy Twombly. Situated between the Etruscan Museum and the Villa Borghese, La Galleria Nazionale was designed to evoke a “temple of art”.
