Palazzo Maffei, which overlooks Piazza delle Erbe, is an extraordinary collection in a unique location: a house museum just waiting to be discovered.
“The works I have collected are tales of life, gestures of love, testimonies of the unique and singular sensibility of the artists met over the years.” With these words the Veronese entrepreneur and collector Luigi Carlon describes the passion that drove him to open his house-museum to the public.
Palazzo Maffei, one of Verona’s most scenic 17th-century buildings, is a treasure trove of masterpieces and curiosities that has become a new reference point for art lovers.
Five centuries of history for an exhibition of ancient and modern art, with more than 350 works, including almost 200 paintings, about twenty sculptures, drawings and an important selection ofapplied art objects.
Twenty rooms decorated with stuccoes and frescoes overlooking Piazza Erbe make an elegant domestic setting into a wunderkammer that is a synthesis of the arts. The great passion for Futurism and Metaphysics gives collectors the opportunity to display unique masterpieces by Balla, Boccioni, Severini, but also Picasso, Magritte, Duchamp and other important artists of the last century.
