28 December 2015-16 March 2016 

More than seven hundred works, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, miniatures, waxworks, glass, ivories, porcelain and furniture: it's the precious Marabottini Collection, on permanent display in Palazzo Baldeschi in Perugia.

 

Alessandro Marabottini Marabotti (1926-2012) left his extraordinary art collection to the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Perugia. Set up over two floors, the exhibition is organised following a chronological/ themed trail, with landscape paintings and portraits from the 16th and 17th centuries as well as religious art.

The collector's interest in cultures outside Europe has also allowed the creation of a "Wunderkammer", a room of wonders, in which unusual objects from Central America, South Africa and the Far East contrast with traditional Italian artefacts.

A real house-museum in which some of Marabottini's rooms have been recreated: neoclassical spaces in which 17th and 18th century paintings are alternated, leading to those from the 20th century.
