Fondazione Magnani Rocca


A villa surrounded by an ancient park houses the Magnani Rocca Foundation, opened in 1990 in order to host the prestigious collection of art belonging to Luigi Magnani, an extremely cultured man who was interested in the history of art, literature and musicology. Among several masterpieces, visitors will be able to admire St. Francis receives the Stigmata by Gentile da Fabriano, the Madonna and child by Filippo Lippi, St. Sebastian by Lorenzo Costa, Madonna del Patrocinio by Albrecht Durer, Dead Christ borne by two angels by Vittore Carpaccio, Sacra conversazione by Titian, a Portrait of Ferdinand Gonzaga by Rubens, an Equestrian portrait of Giovanni Paolo Balbi by Van Dyck and the breathtaking Portrait of the family of the infante Luis by Goya.
Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, De Chirico, de Pisis, Carrà, Guttuso, Burri and several paintings by Morandi are also displayed in the rooms of the villa, togheter with sculptures by Canova, Bartolini and Manzù. The original arrangement of the furniture, among which important Empire pieces and a Jacob and Thomire malachite basin given as a gift to Napoleon by Tzar Alexander I, has been respected to preserve the lively atmosphere of a house that has hosted in the past some of the most important figures of the European cultural scene.

Generally the Foundation organizes two temporary exhibitions every year, in Printemps and in Autumn.
