Villa Guinigi National Museum – Archaeology and sacred works

0
The National Museum of Villa Guinigi is the museum of the city and its territory, as it exhibits one of the richest and most interesting collections of works of art created for Lucca by Lucchese or foreign artists working in the city for ecclesiastical and secular commissions. In the halls of the Villa, which was the residence of Paolo Guinigi, Lord of Lucca from 1400 to 1430, in late Gothic style, the history of the city can be retraced: the itinerary starts from the 8th century B.C. with the archaeological collection (with prehistoric finds, Ligurian, Etruscan and Roman remains), and goes up to the 18th century with works mainly on sacred subjects, valuable pieces such as the "Pietà" by Matteo Civitali.
