This museum in Nuoro has more than 200 works by outstanding 20th-century Sardinian artists, including Antonio Ballero, Giuseppe Biasi, Francesco Ciusa, Giovanni Ciusa Romagna, Mario Delitala, Carmelo Floris and Costantino Nivola. It also boasts the only collection of drawings and ceramics by Salvatore Fancello and the complete collection of graphic works by Giovanni Pintori.

Every year, Man also organises at least four temporary historical and thematic exhibitions on the greatest masters of 20th-century art.

The museum experience is designed to involve visitors and is accompanied by workshops, such as the graphic art and painting workshop which starts from the exploration of signs and symbols and then through group work enables visitors to practice artistic techniques.
