  • Staff courteous and extremely interesting collection. It was a revelation. A visit I would suggest!

  • Strange collection, set in a fanciful medieval style, with battlements, gargoyles, Golden Spire, Moorish and Red Gate portal, all built in the early decades of the ' 900: a modern reproduction of antique models, a mock container and imaginary, perfectly in theme with its content. Overall the Museum House (open only on the ground floor) is made up of a dozen locations. Inside the walls in a shade of dark red pompeiano and lights that barely illuminate the works kept, envelop the visitor in a particularly evocative, almost mysterious. Atmosphere that conveys the collection an aura of charm; jewelry, weapons, textiles, paintings, finely inlaid furniture works of superb craftsmanship and quality produced by extremely skilled artists and craftsmen. Similar works (and the same origin: the so-called "manifattura Marcy" or the same antique shop) are assets of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum in London, the Metropolitan in New York and some great private collections. But here the going gets fun: the manufactory Marcy, (owned by Pai) produced (in late ' 800 and early ' 900) manicured fakes, inspired by the styles of different periods, from medieval times to the ' 700, making use of the work of master craftsmen of the nineteenth century. The works on display are beautiful, well decorated, Sin are mostly "reproductions" or, in the best case, ancient works adapted to what, between ' 800 and ' 900, thought to be the original style. This capital represented largely by false (with the exception perhaps of an El Greco and the works of the painter Cesare Mentioned) has the value of historical document extremely interesting and curious. Too bad the game is explained more clearly: many of the works shall bear only the brass plate with the original attribution Parmeggiani, only a few bear, alongside, a cardboard plate illustrating proper attribution. Only significant AIDS to understanding the collection: the fold (free) distributed at the entrance and the explanatory notes on cardboard at the entrance of each Hall. This House-Museum then tells the story of a character who, moving so adventurous among anarchists, fugitives exiles in Paris, Brussels and London, spies, antique dealers, art dealers and the female universe, has been able to Captivate (and cheating) antiques and art experts from around the world. But was able to involve artisans of great skill and sure hand. Time for a visit: a couple of hours; free admission. In the days of my visit was exposed a Nativity scene of the ' 700: for setting, theme and Bill was completely out of context; It was instead a divertissement lovely location, in the same environment, collection of some works of Wal (cats were artful, jugglers and acrobats).

  • Building valuable, original environments that have kept it in the Dim light and imperceptible layer of dust, the intimate atmosphere of a private home; upon entering you feel that vibration that only "case/Museum" know return: the soul of the owner lives in objects that are collected and exhibited, sometimes with a bit of horror vacui, the risk you run when the walls and exhibitors are overloaded, and insufficient lighting for reading the captions, but perfect to capture the taste of the collector , which shines through slyly in attributions makers, such as Piero della Francesca, and blatant as to El Greco. Admirable Madonna del Sassoferrato. A Museum in which triumph the arts of marquetry, carving and Cabinet making, jewellery and fashion history, ancient and modern sculptures, arms glisten archaeological pieces and antiques abound ... A gallery of mirabilia and some curious carabattola, but nothing vulgar or consumerism. Free admission for a cultural asset which deserves greater visibility and maybe a lighting project aimed to enhance the charm of that House in Corso Cairoli in Reggio Emilia, where the holiday season was a fine show an original Nativity scene.
