Since the second half of the nineteenth century, the Municipality of Genoa has owned three of the most beautiful buildings that look onto the sixteenth-century Strada Nuova, today's Via Garibaldi. Two of them, Palazzo Rosso and Palazzo Bianco, have since then always had a museum destination, with artistic collections famous all over the world. Palazzo Tursi is now integrated with the other two in a coherent visit itinerary, which, under the name of "Musei di Strada Nuova", also includes an exceptional complex of courtyards, gardens and panoramic terraces. Since 2001 important works have affected a good part of the three buildings to equip them with research and service structures. This book gives an account of what has actually been done.
