The civic museum Gaetano Filangieri, born and set up inside the fantastic Palace Como, a structure characterized by the splendid Renaissance façade, has changed its essence this year.
Gaetano Filangieri, prince of Satriano, a man of great personality, realized in just six years his dream: the restoration and adaptation of the museum of the fifteenth-century Palace, personally funding the rebuilding and choosing the best architects, engineers and craftsmen. He assigned it to the city, and with the name of the Civic Museum Gaetano Filangieri and was opened to the public in November 1888.
The civic identity of the Museum is captured in the desire to make the Palace even more useful for artistic sharing, by means of the possibility of organizing large events in its rooms.
In addition to showing its unique collections, the Museum focuses on its marvelous spaces, transforming itself into ” THE PALACE OF ART “.
The location is able to host events of various kinds making them unmistakable and framing them of Art and History.
The music, the congresses, the events, the gala evenings, will have the unique taste of the culture, in fact, both the Carlo Filangieri room and the seductive Agata room, give the possibility to make all the events a Unicum.
The Carlo Filangieri room divided into three bays, is an environment with multiple narrative features, which allows the various artistic events to resonate enchantingly between the walls and the works housed. In it we move from Renaissance architectural elements to the renewal of the twentieth century, and then meet sculptures, weapons, clothes and ceramics that tell distant cultures like the Orientals, a melting pot that allows you to tell and find cultural bonds in any artistic event.
The Agata room, an atmosphere of enveloping charm, the look seems to navigate in a boundless sea of enveloping details. Great importance in this environment is given by the diffused illumination that is provided by the fantastic iron and glass skylight, built in 1888, commissioned by the Cottrau Metal Construction Company.
The environment is characterized by the particular majolica paving, on the bottom of which is repeated the figure and the arms of the Filangieri, in this gallery, paintings from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century, of great European masters including: Heckart, Fuger, Luca Giordano, Solimena, Andrea Vaccaro and Jusepe de Ribera create a unique setting for exclusive events.
