The Manzù Museum is 19 km from Casale di Tormaggiore and it is one of the most iconic museums of Modern Art as well as one of the most fascinating around Rome’s area.
The Museum is named after Giacomo Manzù (Giacomo Manzoni) : a sculptor who fascinated the world during his 60-year long career.
In 1989, one of his bronze sculpture (six-meter-tall) was placed in front of the UN headquarters in New York.
The museum holds 90 sculptures, 330 graphic works and some Manzù’s theatrical designes, infact, in the 60’s he designed scenes and costumes for Stravinskij’s, Wagner’s and Verdi’s operas.
The light and sinuous lines are typical of the Manzù’s expressive art, they give an intimate experience with the themes of love, war, women, religion and dance.
Some of his bronze-plated are quite touching and they represent the violence of Fascism like the “Cristo nella nostra umanità” (1939).
The Manzù’s also holds classical jazz concerts and many exhibitions
Free Entry all the time.
