Museum of the Ligurian Academy of Fine Arts – Art in Liguria from the 14th to the 20th century

0
Founded in 1751 on the initiative of a group of Genoese artists and aristocrats, the Accademia Ligustica, today an Institute of Advanced Artistic Education, offers visitors a well-structured museum, an important testimony to art in Liguria from the 14th to the 20th century. The rich collection of paintings includes a significant number of the most famous artists active in Genoa, from the precious gold backgrounds (from demolished or suppressed churches) to Cambiaso, Strozzi, and Domenico Piola and his workshop. There is no lack of evidence of artistic production between the 19th and 20th centuries, from Luxoro to Rayper, D'Andrade and Avendaño, up to Merello and Nomellini. Drawings, engravings, plaster models and marble sculptures, bronzes and terracotta, majolica and porcelain complete a conspicuous heritage that reflects the history of the city itself.
