The Gallery was established in 1937 as an art Littoria’s gallery. Features the works that were donated to institutions and artists invited to the XX Venice Biennial and the Rome Quadrennial II, but the same were lost following the war events starting from ‘September 8, 1943. On December 18, 1994, the remaining works and those recovered by the Carabinieres were exposed permanently, in a temporary but useful context to an overhauled enjoyment. Since 1996 started a project of acquisitions through additional donations, to try a recomposition, filling the big gaps that had caused the dispersion and dilating the chronological original nucleus, to establish continuity in the necessary link with the contemporary art scene. The gallery is housed in seven rooms of the Palace of Culture and collects works of art that allow a path of Italian art between the two wars, favoring the thirties years. In 1999 was established a section of contemporary art, characterized by figurative arts, applied arts, photography and installations, with works from 1955 until today, representative of the movement artistic trends (to works of Attardi, Benetton, Biancini, Calabria, Cantatore, Cappellini, Cesetti, Dova, Fiume, Fontanella, Monachesi, Montanarini, Purificato,Quaglia, Sassu, Sciltian, Treccani); a representative core of the creativity of contemporary pontine artists is forming around the works of Bertoncin and Saltarin.
