Until today we had never heard about Pasquale Revoltella. We visited his mansion close to the harbour and learnt a lot about his life in the 19th century. He was involved in many important ventures such as the realisation of the Suez Canal and the foundation of insurance companies still existing today. He devoted a lot of time to the creation of a large art collection and left his house as a museum. The museum gives a good impression of the grand style of the house in its furniture, sculptures and paintings. Information about the rooms and artifacts is given in both Italian and English. There are no less than 6 floors full of art, mostly 18th and 19th century Italian. Only the top floor has some modern 20th century art. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this museum.
