Castello D'Albertis, in Genoa , was the home of its creator himself, Captain Enrico D'Albertis .
Historic home in Genoa, it is now the seat of the Museum of World Cultures and the Museum of Music of the Peoples . Built in 1886 on an ancient bastion of the fourteenth-century walls, it is one of the most popular house-museums in the Ligurian capital.
Located on the hill of Montegalletto in the Castelletto district, like its counterpart Mackenzie castle, it dominates the city of Genoa, overlooking the Ligurian Sea with an open view.
Traveling by sea and land between the 1800s and 1900s, Captain D'Albertis had in fact enclosed his world in his home, in a romantic setting straddling "chambers of wonders" and colonial trophies. The D'Albertis Castle, with its historicist and exotic taste environments , bears witness to the curiosity towards the unknown and the fascination that the distant worlds visited by the Captain have exercised on his spirit.
With the entrance into the sixteenth-century bastion, on which the neo-Gothic castle was built starting in 1886, a second visit itinerary opens up, in which the archaeological and ethnographic material of the Museum of World Cultures is revealed through dialogue and exchange with the populations from which it comes.
