The Siamese Art Museum is located in the Citadel Museum inside the Castle of Cagliari. The museum was named after Stephen Cardu, sailor, traveler, designer and builder Sardo. The museum is the only one dedicated to Oriental art in Sardinia and has the largest art collection in Europe siamese. The collection is the result of research Collector Cardu Cagliari, who has donated the entire collection to the city in 1914. The objects he collected come from Thailand, Japan, China and India. The collection consists mostly of paintings depicting scenes from the Ramakien, Buddhist sculptures in ivory, wood, silver and bronze and manuscripts. Of great historical and artistic interest are the many kimonos and Japanese netsuke, Siamese and Chinese porcelain, dating back to the Ming and Qing Dynasty. The collection also includes a unique collection of weapons from Asia in south-eastern Italy and a rich collection of oriental coins.
