It highlights the contribution made by 9 italic tribes from Abruzzo and Molise to the making of Rome, thus giving the name “Italy” to the entire peninsula. A brief summary illustrates how much of their past has been handed down to us in terms of customs, beliefs, places of worship, products, objects, manners etc. « less

Inside, it houses the precious and ancient ceramic collection of Castelli, the result of 40 years of research and study by Professor Raffaele Paparella Treccia, a famous orthopedist, who donated his collection and his house to a Foundation, inaugurated in 1997, and named after him and his wife Margaret Devlet. Castelli, a small village in the province of Teramo, located close to the Gran Sasso Montain, has been, over the centuries, one of the largest centers for the production of ceramics. Its ceramics have crossed the boundaries of Abruzzo and Italy to become, especially in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the most popular and desired ceramics, also in the main European courts. The collection exhibited in the Villa consists of 151 selected masterpieces of the ceramic art of Castelli, the work of the great Castelli masters active between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, including Francesco Grue, his son Carlo Antonio Grue, his grandson Francesco Antonio Saverio and others, such as Gentili, Cappelletti and Fuina, ordered chronologically, and displayed in the main rooms of the house . The collection documents the transition from the genre compendiario, which defines the so-called "white", characterized by extreme simplicity of the elements (XVI and XVII centuries), from the storied and baroque fulfillment of historical, religious and mythological scenes (XVII and XVIII centuries), to the Rococo and Neoclassical (XVIII and XIX centuries). The Museum has also fine paintings, including a fifteenth century nativity and two cathedrak interiors of 1600, attributed to Monsu Desire, a name that encompasses three artists of French origin, working in Naples, the most important of which was Francois Didier Nome. The Paparella Foundation is committed to spreading the knowledge of the majolica of Castelli, cultural and educational activities, to promote love and interest for Art. « less
