Modern & Contemporary Art Gallery "Raffaele De Grada"

This Gallery, that opened again to visitors in June 2002, is the outcome of a long tradition of works of art commissioned by the Town, which has increased its cultural heritage year after year thanks to donations and temporary exhibitions. The current layout, by the critic Enrico Crispolti, shows just part of the numerous works of art belonging to the Comune di San Gimignano including paintings by Niccolò Cannicci, Renato Guttuso, Sergio Vacchi, Vinicio Berti, Carmelo Zotti, Luciano Bartolini, and Marco Gastini.
The Gallery also houses paintings by Raffaele De Grada, whose name was given to the Gallery. Among them, some important works such as "Fuga in Egitto" (Flight into Egypt) and "Il ponte degli Scopeti" (The Scopetis' Bridge). One of the halls of the Gallery houses the entire cycle of "Il pericolo" (Danger) by Giannetto Fieschi.
