Musei Civici di Villa Paolina

The Municipal Museums of Villa Paolina are housed in one of the most remarkable buildings in town: the summer residence of Paolina Borghese Bonaparte.

Built around 1822 on a project of Giovanni Lazzarini, the residence was bequeathed by Paolina to her sister Carolina Murat.

In the course of time it served different purposes: first a boarding school, then a comprehensive, it was seriously damaged during World War II and left to decay.

Since the 1980's, however, repairs have been made and in 1986 the Civico Museo Preistorico Alberto Carlo Blanc was opened. More recent renovations have led to the opening of the Pinacoteca Lorenzo Viani on the ground floor in 1994.
