This small but precious museum, located in the heart of a bourgeois villa provides suggesting late-century atmospheres.
A sculptor of international fame, passionate about music and composer himself, spent a long time at the courts of Europe where the aristocracy commissioned portraits and memorial monuments. He moved to Rome in 1922 and managed to get permission from the municipality to use this building as his own home-studio. In return, the artist commits himself to donate, after death, all the works collected there over the years to become a museum named after him.
