MUVIT – Torgiano Wine Museum
The Museo del Vino-MUVIT is hosted inside Palazzo Graziani-Baglioni, along the main street of Torgiano, a renowned viniculture production centre between Perugia and Assisi.
This Palace, built in the 17th century, represents an important example of a patrician rural estate. It was the summer residence of the Perugian Graziani family.
Its name "Graziani-Baglioni" is due to the marriage, in the 19th century, of Anna Graziani and Pietro Baglioni. Its premises have hosted the Wine Museum-MUVIT since 1974, when it was conceived of and realized by the initiative of Giorgio and Maria Grazia Lungarotti. The museum is unusual in that it is privately owned with a thematic character, and is motivated more by historical and cultural ambitions than by business interests.
The collection is subdivided into thematic sections, but all of them are centered on the main subject: wine.
