The Rocca di Umbertide Center for Contemporary Art is located in the historic center of the city, housed in a mighty medieval fortress built at the end of the 14th century by the architect Angeluccio di Ceccolo based on a project by Alberto Guidalotti. In the eighties of the last century the structure underwent massive renovations which allowed the recovery of its historical identity and the complete use of the premises now used as an exhibition venue dedicated to contemporary art.
Over the years, events have been set up that presented works by the major protagonists of twentieth-century Italian art: the futurists Balla and Boccioni, Guttuso, Mafai, Scipione, Pirandello, De Chirico, Carrà, De Pisis, just to name a few. The civic collection of the Rocca is periodically displayed in its rooms, made up of works donated over the years by some of the hosted artists and which includes, among others, works by Giovanni Ciangottini, Renato Birolli, Mino Maccari, Luciano Minguzzi, Toti Scialoja, Corrado Cagli, Domenico Consagra, Mirko Basaldella.
