Contemporary Art in Villa Croce
As most of the museums in Genoa
focus on art of the Middle Ages and/or Renaissance, it is nice every now and then to find options that feel slightly more 'modern'. Head to the Villa Croce (just a 15 minute walk from the old town) for the interesting juxtaposition of contemporary art installations in a very historical building. If you come on a Sunday, the visit is free - and you can also see all the dogs of Genoa enjoying a morning outing in the park that surrounds the Villa. Don't miss the upstairs gallery space - the exhibit by Jackie Saccoccio is breathtaking.
