Overview

The Accorsi - Ometto Museum, open to the public in Dicember 1999, hosts the polished collection of Pietro Accorsi, one of the most important European antique dealers of the 20th century. The Museum is conceived as a home-museum elegantly furnished, in accordance with the antique dealer's taste and the sensibility of Giulio Ometto, his longstanding collaborator and President of the Foundation. The 27 rooms of the museum, reconstructed with extraordinary richness, recreate a refined home of the eighteenth century, where furniture and objects are fitted into an ancient setting to each other. Among the many masterpieces held, the collection includes the secretaire-cabinet in rare wood with ivory and tortoiseshell made in 1738 by Pietro Piffetti, considered certainly "one of the most beautiful piece of furniture in the world".

You enter the palace and you fill as a guest, rather than a visitor. I often pay a visit to this museum, both for the always interesting art exhibitions that Fondazione Accorsi hosts and for the museum itself. The exhibitions are not so large, so...More
