Casa Museo Signorini Corsi

house museum Via Patini  42, 67100 L'Aquila (L'Aquila, Abruzzo)

The earthquake which hit L'Aquila condemned the Signorini Corsi House Museum and made it unfit for use. Nevertheless we decided to include it in this itinerary of Italian House Museums in the hope we will be able to visit it again in the future, convinced as we are that it will continue to illustrate our public and cultural heritage.

In 1967 Luigi Signorini Corsi, a lawyer and a collector, decided to leave his most intimate and meaningful objects (his house and magnificent art collections) to the city where he lived: all the objects had to remain in the house to illustrate "a typical apartment belonging to a family from L'Aquila."
The art collections in the six rooms open to visitors are not exhibited in any special chronological or thematic order. Instead the itinerary intends to showcase the tastes and sensitivities of its owners.

More information and pictures are available in Italian in the website.

In-depth information on this House Museum can be found in House museums in Italy. New cultural itineraries: poetry, history, art, architecture, music, arts & crafts, tastes and traditions, a guide-book by Rosanna Pavoni, which can be purchased on line.

Casa Museo Signorini Corsi is a pioneering House Museum in our Case Museo in Italia Network. It belongs to the Collectors' houses category.
