  • I visited this extraordinary place thanks to a friend of mine who lives in Bordighera. I had no idea that, abandoning the Via Romana, began an unexpected path. Walking through it I noticed massive roots snaking along the trail. After a giant Ficus enveloped all available space, "eating" some walls. Seem to enter a forest! Towards the bottom of the lawn a huge Wisteria almost hides the façade of the museo Bicknell. It is a strange and unique museum contains collections of butterflies, booklets of notes, books, musical instruments, paintings, casts, I mean the legacy of a learned man, fond of various aspects of life in all directions: from Botany to the storio, from painting to music. Unfortunately the place needs a sponsor to keep it alive and renovate it. Other Nations "leccherebbero mustache" if they had an asset like that!

  • Clarence Bicknell was a British scientist who left various legacies in Bordighera. This museum takes the visitor back in time!  more »
  • Stop for those visiting western Liguria. The Bicknell Museum is located in the middle of the Roman road, surrounded by an historical Park a bit neglected and partly concealed by large Wisteria that covers the façade. Inside is the great library and the archaeological collection created by Clarence Bicknell at the end of the 800 and enriched by Nino Ladd since 1939. You can feel the history of the former British colony of Bordighera strolling through the great Hall where they hang the portraits of Bicknell and grandsons Edward and Margaret Berry. Numerous cultural events and publications that can be purchased. The place could do with a thorough restoration. The direction makes every effort to keep them at their best with the meager funds it receives. Not to be missed!
