Now in the hands of the city council, this baroque, aristocratic residence next to the Indro Montanelli Public Gardens is used as an exhibition space for science and nature-themed events. Its architectural splendour and idyllic setting have seen it change hands, and function, on numerous occasions. Indeed, it is not so long ago that it was used as a language school and a venue for civil weddings. The overall style is 18th-century, with the central section of the building dominated by a generous loggia. The wonderful state room with frescoes by Giovan Battista Tiepolo depicting scenes from antiquity is an extraordinary, if little known, masterpiece of rococo art.
Open for temporary exhibitions.
