Owner description: Established in 1971, the Lercaro's Collection owes its existence to a group of artworks donated to Cardinal Lercaro (1891-1976) on his eightieth birthday by some artists in recognition of his promotion of the arts. This first donation was soon followed by many others by various different artists who wished to show their respect to the Cardinal.
The collection has never been confined to sacred art. It includes masterpieces by Giacomo Manzu, Arturo Martini and other sculptures by Adolfo Wildt, Francesco Messina, Eugenio Pellini and Vittorio Tavernari. Finally, an extensive selection of paintings and graphic arts, including works by Giacomo Balla, Giorgio Morandi, Filippo de Pisis, Renato Guttuso, Emilio Ambron and many others, are also on view.
