The City Museums: between ancient livers and carriages

Palazzo Farnese in Piacenza is the current seat of the Musei Civici (City Museums).

Theatre of the brutal murder of the Duke Pier Luigi Farnese, this historic building has become a huge box for masterpieces and precious objects like the Etruscan Liver, the very sweet Botticelli Tondo (rounded painting), the ducal frescoed apartments and much more.

Don’t miss the giant basement  where you’ll discover the secret life of the court.

Right there you will find the Carriage Museum, second only to that of the Quirinale Palace in Rome. It takes us (this verb fits perfectly...) throughout the history of the European way of life from 18th century to the Modern Age.
