The house-studio can be considered an excellent text for the study of contemporary art.

The House-studio of Fernando Melani (1907- 1985) is a special place for understanding this Pistoia artist’s entire experience, as well as his exploratory journey through the key art movements in the second half of the 20th century, from Arte Povera to Conceptual and Minimal Art.

A large number of artworks occupy the ceilings, walls and floors of the different spaces, in line with the layout that Melani had given them since their creation. The visit among heaps of sedimented materials, experimentation on metals, foils and wires that hang from the ceiling joists, is a striking indoor itinerary that follows the thinking of this key figure in contemporary art.
