As always, the small town museums are the best.! They always seem to really "Knock-it-out-of-the-park" with a fabulous story, collection and history. This museum is about copper and its work, featuring a massive collection of artifacts that will make most wonder why its in a small town. That's because this museum is an all-in-one approach fitting into the local community as copper has been mined here, produced here and handcrafted here into beautiful art. Seeing how things began at a specialty museums fulfills the mind with "now I finally get it". This sets the stage for a younger generation and older who have never been at the grassroots of a workshop or museum. The collection consists of 1000's of artifacts dating easily to the 1400's but also from the 1900's and when finished, a gallery of newly handcrafted items awaits. Finally a museum that is different for those posh big city museums. It is worth your time when in Italy and a drive from just about anywhere.

I was traveling in northern Italy and a friend recommended that I should visit the Museo del Rame Navarini in Trento while staying at the Lake Garda. I usually don’t visit to many museums during my travels and did not know what to expect. But since my friend recommended it I thought I check it out. I was lucky that my guides had been Andrea Navarini and his brother Simone, the grandsons of the company founder Piorino Navarini. You can literally feel the history in this place and it is so much more than just a collection of beautiful pieces. Most of the museum is underground build in the 1600 which certainly is the perfect environment for the over 3000 copper items they display. Visiting from the US, the fact that you can look at and touch artifacts that had been hand-crafted with striking detail in the mid 1500 is simply incredible. The workshop where the Navarini family is still producing amazing copper products today is right above the museum and really makes the experience complete. I could go on and on but in short: It was absolutely fantastic. Time very well spent and I definitely recommend it to anyone that appreciates real craftsmanship and beautifully crafted artifacts and products.

The museum still carries the name of a company that produces copper pots, although very cute inside expect to find a lot more history ... All in all it is worth seeing even if it is something very simple except for a dated piece sixteenth century. I would be a liar in saying that it is a place that remains impressed by the uniqueness ... completely normal!

Response from Navarini, Responsabile relazioni pubbliche at Museo del Rame Navarini
Responded Apr 1, 2016
Good morning mr.Enrico, thanks for visiting us and for your feedback. The museum is a private collection opened to the pubblic composed by 5 different rooms (about 600 m2) and 4 of them are under the ground (being hidden in 1942 by a fllood) builted between 1500 and 1600. The visit tooks about 1 hour and a half (visit of the workshop excluded). The Whole collections counts more than 3000 copper manufacts, 18th century forniture and many other objects. A part of the collection is also often requested by many public museums all-over italy and by the FAI (Fondo per l'Ambiente Italiano) for external exibitions. In these rooms are contained 500 years Middle Europe's history. I'm not sure that this may look like 'completely normal' or not so full of history. I hope you will come back to make a tour with me, so I may have the chance to change your mind. I really hope you enjoyed your stay in Italy, Andrea Navarini
