The Giuseppe Garibaldi Historical Museum develops inside Palazzo Olginati, which dates back to the 15th century but has undergone numerous renovations, the last of which was in the mid-19th century. The palace, together with the furnishings and furnishings present in the building, was donated to the Municipality of Como thanks to the legacy of the last descendant of the Olginati family, Carlotta, on condition that "a museum was set up there to be named after Giuseppe Garibaldi in memory of stay that the General made there "in 1866. The Museum mainly comprises two Sections: the first is dedicated above all to the historical events of the Risorgimento and illustrates the main stages of Como and Italian history, from the first insurrectional uprisings through the wars of independence and the figure of Garibaldi until the two world wars. The second section includes fabrics, clothing items, furnishings and other objects of various kinds that document aspects of Larian life between the seventeenth and twentieth centuries.
