From the series of publications on the Cultural Assets of the Umbria Region, this volume examines the contemporary section of the Municipal Museum of Terni.
[“Orneore Metelli” Municipal Museum of Terni / Paintings and sculptures from the 19th and 20th centuries] The Umbria Region has spent decades on the systematic cataloguing of the cultural assets found in its territory. This activity has led to a series of books presenting the results of these efforts aimed at protecting and publicizing the region’s unique heritage.
This book in the series is on the contemporary section of the Museum of Terni, recently moved to its new headquarters at Palazzo Gazzoli. The catalogue of the works is preceded by introductory essays that reconstruct the formation of the collection, offering an interesting overview of the history of a city whose urban image, cultural and artistic climate have been affected by the rapid, thorough process of industrialization.
