The art gallery is sited inside the old Canopoleno Jesuit College built in 17th Century. It is part of the old town, and close to the most important historical buildings of the city. The adjacent Jesuit church of Gesù e Maria, now dedicated to Santa Caterina, was an integral part of the structure. The recent establishment of the Art Gallery was the result of the need to find a home for the rich artistic heritage donated from private citizens. Previously, with the exception of a small selection which were exhibited in the G.A. Sanna National Archeological Museum, these were kept in store rooms. The exhibition covers three floors of the building and consists in more than 400 works of art, mainly paintings. It is divided into different themes (religious subjects, mythology, history, portraits, landscapes, still lifes, genre scenes etc.). These are organised chronologically and show the work of different Italian and European artists and schools from the medieve to the 21th Century. There is also an important collection of the works of Sardinian artists from the early 20th century and a rich collection of graphic works.

We went to this art museum for a special day out and I am very glad we did. Beautiful painting from the XXIII to modern times. Even my partner was pleasantly surprised by the breath of the art exhibited. Excellent presentation and explanation. Very friendly staff. This museum deserves to be better known. Will definitively go back there !
