Fantoni House Museum

Description

The idea of collecting the immense artistic heritage of the Fantoni family came from the last descendant of the family, who in 1968 gathered documents, works and sketches in the family’s old house-workshop in Rovetta. The inlayer Andrea Fantoni, who lived between the 1600s and the 1700s, is certainly the most famous exponent. Yet, other members of the family were also noteworthy artists, mainly inlayers, but also literati and typographers.

Among the exhibits in the House Museum, you will see many sacred furnishings and devotional images, sketches and models of the works, as well as portraits and documents of various kinds, such as accounting books, letters and contracts.
