The Museum, created by the collection gathered by Glauco Lombardi (1881-1970), brings together artistic and historic documents about Maria Luigia of Hapsburg and Napoleon Bonaparte, alongside many important and precious works and documents relating to the Duchy of Parma in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The Art heritage of a people is sacred, and history demands that you keep your great things in their birthplace, where they can adorn the life of the people who created them.
It was with this mentality that professor Glauco Lombardi gave all his working life to collecting, to studying and to conserving whatever he could from historical markets or private collections on the artistic and documentary history of Parma under the Bourbons (1748-1802, 1847-1859) and the Ludovics (1816-1847), mainly destined, during the complex and troubled period of the unification of Italy to finish up in various residences of the house of Savoy.
Since January 2017, our members can get a discount on entry to the Museum – by presenting their membership card they pay €3.00 instead of €5.00.
