    In a chronological order, Ferruccio and Anna Maria Battolini's collection is the latest donation to the Commune of La Spezia: it documents sixty years of activity in the world of art and of militant criticism. A critic, writer, author of epigraphs, a passionate bibliophile well beyond the confines of his role as a senior executive in the field of libraries, a promoter of cultural events and an organizer of exhibitions, Ferruccio Battolini has historicized the second half of the Twentieth century in the field of arts, in La Spezia. His collection was formed due to his encounters, acquaintances and to the experience of a life spent among artists as testified by the numerous dedications. Different and various are the contributions from some of the protagonists of the historical editions of the "Premio del Golfo", from the "Gruppo dei sette" from La Spezia, to some of the most representative artists of the Italian post-war artistic landscape, such as Guttuso,Spinosa, Montarsolo, Nespolo, just to mention a few ones. Works by the masters of the generation at the beginning of the Twentieth Century, of the one of mid-century, and of more recent artists, up to present-time promising artists, historically document the wealth of the artistic tradition of this city.
