This museum was completely renovated (almost rebuilt from scratch) in 2015. The architecture is stunning: a clean, understated, and linear construction in soft sand colors in the centre of the city. The building fits the milieu (make sure to walk around the block where the museum is); yet, it is in stark contrast to the existing buildings surrounding it.
The collection is the hidden gem. It shows a cohort of stunning pieces from the Venetian area from the beginning of the 20th century by artists that most other museum would, erroneously, ignore. Serena and his realistic portraits and real life scenes, Martini and his almost expressionistic sculptures, and finally Rossi, a painter as talented as he was crazy.
Make sure not to miss this museum if you are in Treviso (and you should be, it's a gorgeous city! ;) ). The museum features descriptions of the pieces in each room in Italian and English. The texts are instructive and surprisingly well translated in English. I hope you enjoy it.
