    Admire an eclectic collection of sculptures and Futurist paintings at this unique celebration of modern Italian art.

    Visit the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art with Go City®

    • With us, there are no entry fees on the day – all you've got to do is show your pass.
    • The Estorick Collection is the UK’s only gallery dedicated exclusively to modern Italian art – see the paintings, sketches and sculptures that helped shape the scene
    • There are six galleries over three floors, plus a library, a bookshop and a café. 

    Explore this impressive showcase of some of the early 20th Century’s most important works of Italian art, including pieces by Boccioni and Modigliani.

    The Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art is housed inside a grand, Grade II-listed Georgian townhouse just off the Holloway Road.

    Opened in 1998, it boasts an incredible collection of art from the first half of the 20th Century, with the majority of pieces on display from the Futurism movement founded by F. T. Marinetti in 1909.

    Artists whose works you can expect to see in the galleries include Medardo Rosso, considered one of the most pioneering sculptors of his time, and Umberto Boccioni, an early Futurism adopter. There are also pieces by Italian artists less closely associated with the movement, such as Modigliani’s famous elongated portraits, and Giorgio de Chirico dreamlike The Revolt of the Sage.

    Don’t miss The Library on the top floor, which contains over 3,000 books and periodicals, including Fortunato Depero's 'bolted book' Depero Futurista, a modern masterpiece of graphic design and bookmaking, as well as first editions of novels by Wyndham Lewis, and much more.

    You can pick up some arty souvenirs of your visit in the gallery shop, and pause for delicious Italian specialties in the Estorick Caffè with its lovely glass conservatory and tranquil garden.
