The Civic Art Gallery of Forlì was established in 1838, with a collection built around the art that had been scattered after the closure of churches and convents under Napoleon. Subsequent acquisitions included several prestigious private collections, bringing coverage into the 20th century. Today, the Art Gallery boasts an almost complete collection of works from Forlì artists, from the Gothic period to the current day. The gallery's oval room hosts the Hebe, the work of neoclassic sculptor Antonio Canova.
The Gallery is housed in the partially restored Musei San Domenico complex, as part of the city's heritage network of artistic holdings. Go for the frescoes, stay for the Canova!
