Art Museum
“The entrance can be made either sea or city side. Yet, soon you will learn that the city side was the noble side and that access to this neoclassical villa of the early 20th century is there. Attention: the reception and the ticket office are in the pavilion on the city side. You will not be disappointed because the adjoining store contains some very nice gift ideas. Upon entry, the feeling of being transported to the 19th century grabs you. The Empire style predominates and connects the place to the story of the illustrious grandfather, Marshal Massena dubbed "the darling child of Victory" by Napoleon himself .... The ground floor has kept the charm of yesteryear, living rooms and dining room, family portraits and Bonaparte. It is striking to walk in this palace almost expecting to see our reflection in crinoline or coat, in every mirror that faces us. The woodwork of Govone Castle is sumptuous. Do not forget to look at the clocks and lamps that are works of art. The staircase leading to the first floor brings together the whole Massena family ... If we look well everyone is there. In the foreground, the present of the time and behind the columns, the missing ... Delicate attention ... ”
