The Galleria d’Arte Moderna di Roma Capitale in Rome is the municipal museum of modern and contemporary art. It is specialised in works of the late 19th and early 20th century.

The museum’s collection includes over 3.000 works, mainly paintings but also sculptures and drawings. Around 150 works are on display, documenting movements like Symbolism, Realism, Divisionism and Expressionism with works by artists like Giorgio De Chirico, Giorgio Morandi, Renato Guttuso, Mario Mafai, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini, Giuseppe Capogrossi and Alberto Savinio.

The Gallery was established in 1925, but suspended between 1938 and 1949 with the works temporarily stored in the depot of the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna or used to decorate office spaces. After the reopening in 1949 the collection has been housed in many different locations, only to settle down in its current location in 1995.

The building that now houses the museum is a 17th century cloistered monastery, once headquarters of the Discalced Carmelites order. It has been thoroughly restored to fit the needs of a modern museum.
