The CAMeC (Centro Arte Moderna e Contemporanea) is located in La Spezia in Piazza Cesare Battisti 1. We are in the old city centre, just a few metres away from: Piazza Mentana and the Civic Theatre; the military arsenal; the historic gardens and the Morin promenade.
Many important museums are concentrated in this area, which in recent years has undergone numerous restorations and improvements: the San Giorgio Castle Museum, the Ethnographic and Diocesan Museum; the Lia Museum; the Seals Museum; the Art Palace; and the Naval Museum.
