A small, high quality collection of paintings and other works of art collected by a local noble family. Well worth a visit. Some monumental works and some small and intricate pieces. Unusual terracotta statuary incluing polychromes.

To take a break from heat and crowds, we visited this museum in the afternoon, and spent about 2 hours admiring the art collection. Nice museum to visit if you have time.

This is a nice art collection from the 14-15th century +16th century. Artists like Corregio, Bassano, Tintoretto and others. Many artists from the area that are not well known to the public but are very good nevertheless. Yona S.
