Is it possible to find contemporary art in a medieval Tuscan town? Pistoia is an example of this.

You will also see a really criticized artwork, the Moon in the well by Gianni Ruffi. Perhaps you will love it, after your guide explaining it!

You will also see the Museum of Palazzo Fabroni, that houses the Center of Visual Arts in the beautiful setting of a palace of the XVII century: there you will be certainly seduced by the Sculpure of shadow by Claudio Parmiggiani.
