The collection of the Museo di Fotografia Contemporanea at the present time includes eighteen photographic funds - property of the Region of Lombardia, Province of Milano and Municipality of Cinisello Balsamo, Milano. The pictures and the negatives, realised by around 250 authors, are amongst the most precious collections existing today in Italian institutions and constitute an important witness of Italian and foreign photography of the last century.
The Museum also owns around 10.000 books donated by Lanfranco Colombo and acquired from the Amilcare Ponchielli Library and previous purchase.

The activities of the Museo di Fotografia Contemporanea are articulated in different sections linked and integrated to one another: conservation and cataloguing of the pictures' fund; realisation of exhibitions, events and performances; planning and organisation of meetings and workshops about history of contemporary photography; permanent educational activity addressed to schools; publishing activity; promotion of research in the development of contemporary language through photographers; library and multimedia archive and the distribution of services to institutions, universities and firms.
The Museum has at its disposal initial possessions of over one million images, the result of a pluriennal work of collecting conducted by Region, Province and Municipality. The estate comprises significant works of the main Italian and international photographers from World War II until today, who dedicated themselves from social investigation to artistic research.
