The Civico Museo Sartorio is a museum in Trieste, northern Italy. Set in an urban villa, it exhibits ceramics, majolica, porcelain and pictures, typical equipment of Trieste's villas at the end of the 19th century.Besides the villa itself being a very interesting building architecturally, it contains drawings of Giambattista Tiepolo, painting of Giambattista Pittoni and a glyptotheque. The museum opened to the public partially in 1949 and completely 1954. In 2006, the museum reopened after a period of renovation.Currently the Museum hosts temporary exhibits and cultural events such as theatre and music in the summer.HistoryThe villa once belonged, among the others, to the Sartorio dynasty originally from Sanremo. A branch of the family moved in 1775 to Trieste as part of its business expansion. Pietro Sartorio moved from Sanremo to Trieste with his family and bought the house, which had previously belonged to the merchant family Faraon, originary from Alexandria of Egypt. The last heir of the Sartorio family, Baroness Anna Segrè Sartorio, left the villa and all its furniture to Trieste's city council with the explicit wish to make it a public museum.The villa was used by the Allies, as their headquarters after WW2, as can be seen by the marks on the tiles and walls where the telephone and electric leads were brought through.

  • A day in the Revoltella and Saber deserves a visit to Trieste, but check the schedules.

  • A very beautiful and charming park and area. The Museum is good, but nothing out of the ordinary, everything everywhere. Paintings, chairs, tables.

  • Nestled in a park, this beautiful home offers unexpected treasures including 245 drawings of Tiepolo, found by chance and the relics of the middle age of high value. But the person who necessarily accompanies visitors is not a guide, she speaks the lows and does not understand our issues in English... We nevertheless had the chance to have an Italian Lady of Bologna which summarized us the comment as and in our small group.

  • Excellent presentation of artwork in a historic building. Combine with a visit to Revoltella gallery few hundred meters away. Watch for opening times and guidance times as currently it is not possible to visit Museo Sartorio on your own. A guide will take you around.
  • Always interesting, initiatives that allow even the uninitiated to learn about the history and culture of the past of our beautiful city and the world.
