The Pietro Ghizzardi Museum is where the on-off artist Pietro Ghizzardi (1906-86) lived much of his life. One of the most important exponents of European Outsider Art, Ghizzardi was never afraid to play with different artistic styles, creating works of notable complexity.

It also houses a considerable quantity of material relating to both his private and public life, especialy regarding his video and photo archive
