The Permanent Collection of GAMeC is divided into several main groups:
- The Spajani Collection: among the 40 or so works donated by the collector, a large selection illustrates the broad course of Italian painting in the twentieth century, in particular the first half of the century.
- The Manzù Collection: donated by Giacomo Manzù to his hometown, the collection ranges across the artistic career of this recognised twentieth-century European sculptor.
- The Stucchi Collection: the collection's interest in the prolific research into abstractionism is represented by Atanasio Soldati, Alberto Magnelli and Luigi Veronesi. The works of a group of European artists document the radical linguistic transformation that was to influence an entire generation of post-war artists through the Informel.
Added to these, the Collection is enriched by paintings of masters of the thirties, including Sironi, and works by contemporary artists: Alviani, Basilico, Beecroft, Cattelan, Cucchi, Fabre, Man, Bonnet, Xhafa .
The assets of GAMeC is finally enriched by Contemporary Collection of medals donated by Vittorio Lorioli, by the Fund Nino Zucchelli and the Photographic Collection Lanfranco Colombo.
