Resources and Teaching Tools

A museum is a resource, a well of information, a treasure chest of old and new things.

In this section we present some interesting articles and studies on various art objects on display in our museum. The context, the history and meaning of the "piece", help us better understand the culture and the people that have created them.

See a brief history of the dynasties of China, and its impact on art, paintings, bronze objects, and ceramics on display in the museum.

Guided School Tours

Your visit will be guided. The museum space is designed for groups of about 20 people (or less), so as to help appreciate and see the exhibits.
The same opening hours of the Museum, Tuesday-Saturday, are reserved for these group visits, with prior arrangements.
Fee: € 1.50 per student.
