Palazzo Maffei Casa Museo, Verona's magnificent museum opened to the public in February of last year, recently opened its second exhibition floor.

In this Maison d'Art imagined by the collector Luigi Carlon and his daughter Vanessa, ten new rooms have been opened to offer even more beauty in this rich decor, which has retained all its authenticity. In these places, sculptures and paintings, Roman antiquities and precious objects interact with happiness.

On the second floor, each of the rooms has its own personality, delightfully mixing old and contemporary, dream and reality to capture the deep nature of the universe and its infinite character.

 The bust of Marcus Aurelius sits majestically in the Antiquarium next to the "Gladiators" of Chirico. The philosopher emperor thus rubs shoulders with combatants in the arena struggling to regain their freedom at the cost of their lives. Another room is an ode to nature with the works of Antonio Canova and Chiaria Dynys before entering a space dedicated to the typical Veronese landscapes of the 19th century.

The walls decorated with precious frames, totally empty, seem to expect visitors to deposit their dreams.


 

 

 

 

 

 

At the heart of the Salon du Collectionneur, "Hope", the iconic work of Robert Indiana rubs shoulders with 17th century Florentine and Venetian furniture. This wonderful journey ends in beauty with the work of Daan Roosegaarde, the "Lotus Maffei" whose petals change on contact with human beings to flourish and metamorphose to the rhythm of light and heat.

 

A pure marvel of organic architecture rounds off this stroll through the universe of this superb Palazzo Veronese in an apotheosis of sensitivity, the discovery of which is always a most refined pleasure.
