Museo nazionale di Villa Guinigi
Where Via della Quarquonia, Lucca
Today Villa Guinigi houses a Museum of the City and Territory, thanks to one of the richest and most interesting collections of art produced in Lucca by local or foreign artists who worked for both clerical and secular clients. Most of the artworks were originally owned by the Church, but became State property after the unification of Italy. Further loans and acquisitions were added to the collections in the following years.
