A smallish but interesting collection of fine and applied arts. I sense the artists and designers of the day aspired to optimism in the face of those turbulent times- world wars, technology, fascism. It's a mixed bag with a little bit of everything- painting, assemblage, ceramics, furniture. The Wolfsonia is a window to a lesser known aspect of art and history. If you have the Nervi museum pass, check it out- otherwise only 5 euro at present.

This is a marvelous collection of Italian art nouveau, also known as "Liberty Style", and art deco style art and furniture. The museum consists of several small buildings set in a gorgeous park overlooking the Lugurian Sea, in a lovely southern neighbourhood of Genoa. A little difficult to get to, but well woth it for those interested in this period of artwork. Some stunning pieces!

We really did not expect to see such a collection as we did. I have an interest in all art deco and was very interested in everything- furniture, glassware, paintings, silverware etc. I wanted to take so much of it home with me to England. I would encourage everyone to visit all three of these galleries...no distance from Genoa on the train.

As a design enthusiast, I found this little museum, which is quite easily accessible from downtown Genoa, to be of great interest. It introduced me to a number of artists, ceramicists and furniture designers that I was previously unfamiliar with (or whose work I had only seen in books). The museum is small, so buy the ticket that includes all the Nervi museums, you can do it all in half a day. Plus, they are all situated on a beautiful botanical park by the ocean. And the little restaurant directly across from the Wolfsoniana is quite the find-barely visible from the street, but a delicious lunch!

The Wolfson collection comprises artefacts, furniture and paintings from the first half of the twentieth century. The museum is strong on art nouveau and art deco, showing a series of striking objects in well planned displays. This is a very modestly sized collection, but really worth a visit.
