Overview

This museum contains works of art by Herbert P. Horne (1864-1916) which he left to the Italian state together with the 15th century palazzo where he had collected them. The museum has kept the same order and style as the collector and it includes works of art, furniture and furnishings that give the house a lived-in quality. It is interesting to see the series of domestic objects: pocket mirrors, firedogs for the fireplace and other objects characterize the tastes of Horne and his search for refinement. There are also several 15th and 16th century paintings and a group of works from Florentine and Sienese artists.
