House Museums in Italy
new cultural itineraries:
poetry, history, art, architecture,
music, arts & crafts, tastes and traditions
by Rosanna Pavoni
House Museums in Italy is a journey across the country to discover the simple houses and splendid royal palaces chosen from amongst the many ancestral houses and mansions Italy has to offer.
Houses selected not only for their beauty or the fame and importance of their inhabitants, but because they tell a story - always different, always captivating.
The house museums illustrated in this book are divided into categories: Personality Houses, Collector’s Houses, Houses of Beauty, Houses representative of Historic Events, Local Society Houses, Ancestral Homes, Royal Palaces and Power Houses, Clergy Houses, Vernacular Houses.
There is a different itinerary for each house, giving the visitor an insider’s guide to Italian culture, its arts, crafts, music and poetry as well as its gastronomic traditions and art of living. The book not only suggests a new way to visit these museums – which increasingly meet and satisfy the new expectations of a growing and varied public – but it also gives the reader a tool to make their own tourist itineraries far from the madding crowd.
Inaugurated in Istanbul the exhibition edited by Rosanna Pavoni dedicated to the Italian House Museums.
The exhibit has been sponsored by the Ministero degli Esteri in order to circulate it among the Istituti di Cultura Italiana around the world.
