The Civic Gallery (Palazzina dei Giardini and Palazzo Santa Margherita) is one of Italy’s most authoritative centres of culture. It organizes temporary exhibitions, conferences, and meetings on issues and people related to contemporary art and photography.

It is also active in terms of collection, through the acquisition, conservation, management, and promotion of three important collections: the Contemporary Drawing Collection, with over 4,000 drawings from 20th century Italian artists; the Contemporary Photography Collection, with over 3,500 photographs from leading international photographers; and the Don Casimiro Bettelli Collection, on loan from the Archiepiscopal Curia of Modena, which features about 800 works, drawings, and graphic art by internationally renowned artists from the second half of the 20th century.
