Castello D'Albertis

The Museum Of World Cultures

The building was the home of its creator, Captain Enrico D’Albertis. Traveling by sea and land between the 1800s and 1900s, the Captain had in fact enclosed his world in his home, in a romantic setting straddling "chambers of wonders" and colonial trophies. The castle, with its historicist and exotic rooms, testifies to the curiosity towards the unknown and the fascination that the distant worlds visited by the Captain have exercised on his spirit.

With the entry into the sixteenth-century bastion, on which the neo-Gothic castle was built starting from 1886, a second tour opens, 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.
