The Palazzo Rosso was built in 1680 for the brothers Ridolfo and Gio Francesco I Brignole Sale.
The first noble floor remained almost intact since then and has a valuable collection of paintings.
Even more surprising is the second noble floor where, in addition to...More
We were lured in by thinking this was a palace. It is however essentially an art gallery. The reason for this being that it was mostly destroyed during the Second World War and so has been reconstructed. This however has meant a lot of the...More

It has also an amazing 360 degree...More
