Collection

The Museum owns the most complete and important collection of works by Costantino Nivola in the world, with over 200 sculptures and paintings acquired through donation over time. The initial collection given by Ruth Nivola, the artist’s widow, featured the sculptural work of Nivola’s final years, in particular his series of bronze and marble “mothers” and “widows”. The collection grew to include smaller terra cotta works from the 1960s and 1970s (beds, beaches, swimming pools), several works in tin from the 1950s, a variety of paintings and models for public projects, and numerous sand cast bas-reliefs. The museum’s collection also includes a large number of Nivola’s works on paper, displayed in rotation.
