Modern architecture surrounded by greenery in Lido di Spina between the coastal pinewood and the beach. It was built in the early seventies by architect and designer Nanda Vigo by the will of master Remo Brindisi (1918 – 1996).
When the building was inaugurated and opened to the public in 1973 under the name of Alternative Museum Remo Brindisi, it was divided into two distinct functions: a summer residence and a museum to house Remo Brindisi’s precious collection.
A very peculiar construction characterized by a big central cylinder that connects the different floors where the living as well as the study and exhibition areas are placed.
The house is adorned with a beautiful spiral stair with wide treads and a steel handrail and the museum was founded to give full visibility to the interdisciplinary relationships that link the visual arts, from architecture to design, from painting to sculpture.
The collection, in which works made by Brindisi himself are on display, includes about two thousand works and is representative of the major national and international art forms of the 20th century: Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Mimmo Rotella, Lucio Fontana, Mario Schifano, Francis Bacon, Medardo Rosso, Emilio Vedova, Giorgio De Chirico, Giò Pomodoro, Henry Moore, Arturo Martini, Emilio Greco, Virgilio Guidi, Mario Sironi, Hans Arp, Ladislas Kijno, Mario Tozzi, Gino Severini, Pippo Oriani, Gianni Dova, Roberto Crippa, Antonio Corpora, Bruno Munari, Agostino Bonalumi…
