The department was also founded in 1991, along with the Ancient Paintings and Furnishings one. The selection is mainly focussed on 19th
century Italian art, where pride of place is given to Macchiaioli and post-Macchiaioli painters, as well as 20th
century Italian and international works and sculptures, which, since Art Deco, have still been influenced by an early-century taste.
