Located in the heart of Arezzo, in front of the Parish Church of Santa Maria, in the fourteenth century Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo, the Ivan Bruschi House Museum houses the eclectic collection of the Arezzo antique dealer, who died in 1996.
Formed since the early 60s for progressive purchases of previous collections and items available on the antique market, the collection today has about ten thousand pieces including furniture, paintings, sculptures, books, glass, ceramics, silverware, jewelry, tools and tools from work and coins. The objects come from places near and far and range from prehistory to the present day.
Inside the building, one of the most important and representative public buildings of the city during the late Middle Ages, as evidenced by the many emblems affixed to the façade, an exhibition route unfolds which, while highlighting the collector’s predilections, allows the reconstruction of the nucleus principal of the collection.
The visitor who walks through the rooms, recently restored thanks to the intervention of BancaEtruria, has the opportunity to observe a selection of objects, chosen according to functional criteria to the need to inform about the overall nature of the collection and the principles that have defined its current form.
In fact, it has been given a particular emphasis both on the pieces of greatest artistic value and on the series of handmade artifacts, capable of evoking the multiform aspects of human activity and action.
