Casa Museo Palazzo Maffei

Casa Museo Palazzo Maffei Verona

09 January 2023

From 20 November 2022 it will be possible to visit the House Museum of Palazzo Maffei.
With its eclectic itinerary between masterpieces and curiosities spanning two thousand years, the Casa Museo Palazzo Maffei offers the visitor an exhibition itinerary with a "double soul", between ancient and modern, thanks to the dialogue between an art collection of great interest, fruit more than fifty years of collecting passion of the entrepreneur Luigi Carlon, and the evocative atmosphere of one of the most spectacular seventeenth-century buildings in Verona.


The visit proposal is surprising, with over 500 works, including paintings, about twenty sculptures, drawings and an important selection of applied art objects (period furniture, antique glass, Renaissance ceramics and 17th-18th century majolica, but also silver, ivory, wooden artifacts, pieces of oriental art, rare volumes) set up in XXVIII rooms, decorated with stucco work and frescoes.


In the first part of the exhibition itinerary, characterized by the views onto Piazza delle Erbe, the dialogue with the rooms on the Palazzo Nobile is privileged, recreating the atmosphere of a private residence, but also the sense of a wunderkammer and a synthesis between the arts, with thematic cores of ancient art in which dialogue with modernity suddenly breaks through.


In the second part, dedicated to the twentieth century and contemporary art, the intention was instead to create a real museum gallery, in which many masterpieces stand out, one can perceive the passion for Futurism and Metaphysics and meet some of the greatest artists of the 20th century: Umberto Boccioni, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini, but also Pablo Picasso, Giorgio de Chirico, Felice Casorati and Giorgio Morandi alongside René Magritte, Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp. And again Afro, Emilio Vedova, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Tancredi, Gino De Dominicis, Piero Manzoni, and many others.


Palazzo Maffei - Casa Museo is a cultural initiative promoted by Luigi Carlon, entrepreneur and collector from Verona, based on an architectural and exhibition design by the Baldessari and Baldessari studio and a museographic idea by Gabriella Belli, with scientific contributions by Valerio Terraroli and Enrico Maria Guzzo .
