The "Musei di Strada Nuova" In Genoa
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.
