The CID/Arti Visive of the Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci, which has been open to the public since 1989, is a library which specializes in the documentation of and research on 20th  and 21st -century art movements and on the exhibitions which have been held in the most important national and international institutions (museums, foundations, public institutions, private galleries).
Over the years, the book collection has been increased through purchases, homages, donations and the private collections of critics, publishers, artists and art experts such as Ferruccio Marchi, Giancarlo Politi, Ermanno Migliorini, Sergio Santi, Amnon Barzel, Egidio Mucci and others.
The CID/Arti Visive today has a heritage of over 60,000 items. Apart from the books, including important catalogues of the main national and international exhibitions, there is the newspaper and periodical section, with over 330 specialized publications, 65 of which are still active; and the audiovisual section, which includes important videos of exhibition set-ups and of the events which have been held at the Centro Pecci since 1988; also recordings of the activities of the educational labs of Bruno Munari.
The aim of the Library is to reflect the multiple contemporary creative languages (architecture and design, visual arts, cinema, dance, music, theatre) in the development of its collections and services, in line with the overall mission of the Centro Pecci. Since September 2014, there has been an agreement between the Centro Pecci and the “Alessandro Lazzerini” cultural and documentation institute of Prato for the development and management of the Library.

 

 

The CID/Visual Arts Library is extending its opening hours and temporarily changing location to the exhibition halls while its rooms are being renovated. The new Reading Room, dedicated to reading, research and quiet study will be in the lobby of the museum, and provides an opportunity to deepen your understanding of art history and its most important players. With free wi-fi, it’s an area of seclusion and tranquillity open to everybody, where you can spend time reading a book or studying in peace.


You can consult the CID/Visual Arts Library’s volumes and books Tuesday to Friday, from 10am – 6pm (booking is advised at cid@centropecci.it). Artists’ videos, exhibition press releases and audio-visual archives about the 30th anniversary of the Pecci Centre are exhibited in the same area as the museum timeline and are available to visit during the regular opening hours of the museum. (Every day from 10am – 8 pm, Friday and Saturday from 10am – 11pm, closed Mondays).
