MAR - Museo d'Arte della Città di Ravenna (Ravenna Art Museum) is housed in the monumental site known as Loggetta Lombardesca, a monastery from the 16th century belonging to the near Santa Maria in Porto Abbey.
From Napoleon's suppressions until the restoration of the early 1970s, the complex underwent frequent reorganizations and changes of use. Evidences of its original structure are still visible in the Renaissance cloister, in the distribution of space and in the elegant five-arch loggia, symbol and strength of the whole complex.
Since 2002, the gallery has been an institution of the Municipality of Ravenna. Its various sections host both important temporary art exhibitions and three permanent collections, namely:
> a collection of ancient artworks, paintings and sculptures from 14th to 19th century, including the outstanding statue of Guidarello Guidarelli by Tullio Lombardi (1525);
> a collection of modern artworks from 19th to 21st century, among which a wonderful drawing by Gustav Klimt;
> a collection of contemporary mosaics, including works carried out between mid-20th century and the present day.
