About
Il Museo Nazionale d’Arte Medievale e Moderna della Basilicata di Palazzo Lanfranchi è stato inaugurato il 6 maggio 2003, al termine dei lavori di restauro dell’edificio, per presentare l’attività della Soprintendenza per i Beni Artistici e Storici che aveva sede nel palazzo dal 1979. Il progetto intendeva proporre il grande lavoro di inventariazione e catalogazione, di ricerca e di studio, di recupero e restauro delle opere d’arte del territorio e proporsi non solo come luogo di raccolta ed esposizione, ma anche come organismo vivo e vitale, spazio di incontro, casa comune aperta a tutti, realtà accogliente e integrata nel tessuto sociale.

This is not to be missed! For many of us students of Italian literature, politics and/or history, we read Levi’s famous novel, ‘Cristo si è fermato a Eboli’, a dramatization of the doctor, artist and author’s time in exile just outside Matera. Years later he was commissioned to paint this work. Also on display are the photos taken at the time.

Excellent exhibition of works of art, and the architecture of the building is interesting, a concentration of masterpieces of Neapolitan baroque art to leave you breathless and not the same outside of Naples itself.
The museum also usually houses interesting exhibitions.

The Palazzo is an impressive building with ample space to display large amounts of art. For a tourist, however, this is not the where you will see the most famous works by artists you’ve encountered in an art history course or lecture. There was an impressive traveling exhibition when we visited about the Renaissance in Southern Italy, and it was very well produced and displayed. In fact, it made the permanent collection rooms seem underwhelming. Toward the back of the Palazzo, The Carlo Levi installation is quite moving and speaks to the poverty and hardship endured by people in the Matera region in the mid 20th century.

This is a nice museum in Matera. Admission is 3 Euros. I enjoyed walking around the palazzo, and seeing the art displayed. My only problem was with the woman who worked the ticket window. I had two one euro coins and small change, and wanted to pay with that, and her attitude was horrible. She complained that I was giving her small change and she would have to count it out! Too bad! She is a horrible representation of the citizenry of this city, and should not be in a position to work with the public like that.

The National Museum of Medieval and Modern Art was once a Palace built by Monsignor Lanfranchi between 1668 and 1872 and is one of the most beautiful buildings in Matera. While the collection is small by museum standards, it is outstanding in the quality of art pieces that are on display there.

Entry was a little bureacratic (waiting while the couple in front had a long conversation and then no change for 20 euros so I had to go to bar across the road) but once inside ... it was spectacular. Wonderful frescos and paintings by Carlo Levi on the ground floor and then a wonderful exhibition of local medieval art on the uppper floor (I think this is temporary). Two hours well spent!

This museum contains a very large painting by Carlo Levi depicting the incredible poverty and hardship suffered by the people over such a long period of time. On the walls were actual photos of people in those harrowing times and one can see that those same people have been incorporated into the wonderful painting. It was a most moving experience.

The Museo di Palazzo Ianfranchi has an interesting collection of sacred and contemporary art. Currently there are several temporary exhibitions there. The Museo is a former convent, the building is very nice. There is a nice terrace that offers beautiful views of Matera

Unfortunately I didn't go inside due to lack of time, but from the outside the Palazzo Lanfranchi is truly stupendous.
If you have time, however, I recommend going in and admiring it.

Very beautiful building with a church incorporated inside it. Visited mainly to admire Lucania '61, a work by Carlo Levi!
