Since being transplanted from a first-floor flat to the Casa Garriga Nogués – a Modernista masterpiece in its own right – this vast private art collection now has enough room to breathe, with two floors of exhibition space. Godia was a Formula 1 driver for Maserati in the 1950s who funnelled his considerable fortune into an impressive collection of medieval religious art, historic Spanish ceramics, sculpture and modern painting. The permanent collection resides on the upper floor and largely consists of medieval sculptures and paintings, including Alejo de Vahía's Pietà and a Baroque masterpiece by Luca Giordano, along with some outstanding Romanesque sculptures. The inaugural temporary exhibition on the ground floor showcases Godia's contemporary collection, with pieces by Ramon Casas, Eduardo Chillida, Picasso, Antoni Tàpies and Joan Miró.
