The Castiglioni Museum

The Castiglioni Museum was born from the donation of thousands of precious finds by the brothers Alfredo and Angelo Castiglioni. For about sixty years, the Castiglioni twins have conducted ethnological and archaeological research and documentation missions in Africa. During the expeditions in the deserts, savannas, forests and mountains of Africa, the Castiglioni brothers collected and cataloged objects of the material and religious life of the various ethnologies. The Museum is located in an annex of the wonderful Villa Toeplitz Park in Varese. The museum is divided into thematic rooms based on ethnic cultures and arts: the Tuareg, the gold of the pharaohs, graffiti, the scattered caravan, the Nile Hamites, tools, weapons and ornaments. The Castiglioni Museum acts as an aggregator of children and families. In fact, there are many educational paths and workshops related to temporary exhibitions and the permanent collection of the museum.
