The Basilio Cascella Civic Museum is located in the historic center of Pescara. The Museum is housed in the chromium-lithographic plant built in 1895. The Museum is dedicated to Basilio Cascella, an Abruzzese artist who lived inside the plant and created a research and experimentation center. Here, he ventured into painting, ceramics, lithography, publishing and photography. The collection exhibited inside the museum includes some of Cascella's works such as oils, drawings, pastels, tempera, watercolors, prints, advertising posters, artistic publishing, lithographs, labels and ceramics. Among all, his masterpiece “the shepherd's bath” certainly stands out. The collection also features the works of his sons Michele, Gioacchino and Tommaso with their distinct personalities and styles. The Museum offers the possibility of reconstructing the historical and artistic path of the Cascella family by comparing their stylistic developments.
