Museum of Sant'Agostino

The Museum of Sant'Agostino is located in Genoa, located in the complex of the former convent of the Eremitani friars of Sant'Agostino, dating back to the thirteenth century.

The Sant'Agostino Museum is the most important of sculpture in Liguria. In fact, it offers a journey through the history of Genoese sculpture up to the most recent periods with finds from the 10th to the 18th century.

Inside the museum, of particular interest are the collections of frescoes and paintings and works on wood from the period from 1200 to 1500, the collection of ceramic artworks which is a testimony of the era of trade in the Mediterranean basin.

The exhibition site of the Sant'Agostino Museum allows a complete journey into the world of Genoese sculpture from the early Middle Ages to the modern age; its collections are also rich in detached frescoes and monumental paintings, which make the visit articulated, varied and rich in cross-references.

Alongside works by some of the great protagonists of Genoese art, such as F.M. Schiaffino, Valerio Castello, Domenico Piola, Luca Cambiaso, F. Parodi, the masterpieces of Giovanni Pisano and Pierre Puget stand out.
