Overview
More
The House-Museum ”Francesco Scaglione” is a unique istance of an eighteenth century “re-enactment museum”. It is a good example of the illuminated collecting which was flowering all over Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, thanks to the contribution of rich individuals.. The building is next to the cathedral in the old town centre, the same place where the church of Santo Stefano used to stand before it was demolished in the sixteenth century. On the first floor, the largest of the communal rooms looks out on a small garden, while the private rooms offer a good view of the square.
