The Carlo Pepi Collection is housed in the village of Crespina, where its creator has gathered works of art over many years, following his instinct and not the fashion. About 20.000 works of art are divided into two sections and houses: the former in Via I Gioielli 15 , the latter in Piazza Battisti 9/15.
The collection is focused on the Macchiaioli painting movement, their followers and Fattori’s pupils. Another section is about the first half of the 20th century; another very important and substantial one concerns the avant-garde of the latter half of the 20th century, comprising some 10,000 works by 1500 artists. For some of the artists the collection contains paintings that illustrate their whole artistic life, as is the case with Giovanni Fattori, represented by as many as 700 works.
Lorenzo Viani is represented as well, with some 300 works, letters and even a few books; the same is true for Giuseppe Viviani. The collection also includes the complete works of other artists such as Giovanni Marchi, Voltolino Fontani, Franco Baroni, Mino Trafeli and Alessandro Volpi.
