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.
From 21 may, GAMeC Permanent Collection will be closed to the public
