It's been a few years since I last visited Edoardo Chiossone museum and I'm sorry to say nothing has changed! It seems the curator has no interest in educating the visitors regarding this admittedly amazing collection of oriental art as the signage remains poor. What information you can locate is often placed on the bottom of statues, near the floor and only in Italian. Over the past three years they have not made any effort to provide any additional information in any other languages, so it's impossible to do anything but just admire the art. But even those visitors understanding Italian will be disappointed at the lack of information. Don't go on an overcast day, as the lighting is poor and it's difficult to appreciate the pieces on the third floor.
Right now they offer a collection of beautiful photographs from India. The only other reason to visit is in the Spring when they host 3-4 concerts in the foyer every Thursday and the cost of admission to the museum is included. The pavement leading up to the museum has been repaved but litter is still a problem and some small areas of the park are off limits. The fountain is no longer functional. It's sad to see it so neglected and without any effort by the curator to improve the information. Shame!
