Turin's modern-art museum is one of the most important in Italy. It was founded in 1863, so its collections actually start with late-18th- and 19th-century neoclassical and Romantic works by Piemontese and other artists (Canova, Massimo d'Azeglio, Francesco Hayez) -- in fact, the modern building itself makes a sharp point about our notions about art and its relevance with a glowing sign on the roof: ALL ART HAS BEEN CONTEMPORARY. The collections are largely arranged chronologically, with rooms focusing on specific movements or periods. Of the more than 600 works on display, you'll see art by Modigliani, Giorgio de Chirico, Gino Severini, Otto Dix, Max Ernst, Paul Klee, and Andy Warhol. On the first Friday of each month, you can take a free guided tour of the museum. Call for times.
