Having started off as an entity to encourage the young artists of Rome in the early 20th Century, the Galleria d'Arte Moderna had its first serious art exhibition at the Palazzo Caffarelli in 1925. Over the decades, the collection was significantly enlarged. Having changed its exhibition areas several times, in 1995, it found its permanent place in the old convent of the Barefooted Carmelites of St. Joseph. The present-day art ensembles amount to some 4,000 works, most of them having been completed during the 19th and 20th Century. Here one can view art by Rodin, Balla, de Pisis and Carrè.

Inaugurated in 1999 as a multifunctional exhibition venue, Museo del Corso has gained on popularity to become one of the internationally significant sites for exhibitions and retrospectives. The Museo emphasised on innovation, which is mirrored, to some extent, in its various exhibition styles. The displays vary tremendously, with some of the past exhibitions having exerted a strong influence on Italian culture. Exhibits of modern and 20th Century art, although not a prerogative, have been held in the museum's Caveau. Some of the past exhibitions have included an important collection of 16th - 18th Century art, a retrospective of the history of the old Roman road, Via del Corso, a collection of French masterpieces, a review of Tuscan Impressionists and 20th Century sculpture, and a valuable exhibit dedicated to Art Deco.
