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....More
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...More
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...More
