Cassioli Museum in Asciano

The Cassioli Museum was created in 1991 with a collection of works which used to belong to Amos and Giuseppe Cassioli

Via Fiume, 8

The Cassioli Museum was created in 1991 with a collection of works which used to belong to Amos and Giuseppe Cassioli. One of their descendants donated the works to set up the museum which has been recently reopened to the public. The museum now has a new layout and has added many more important works from nineteenth century Sienese painting to its collection. Many of these paintings come from the Art Institute ‘Duccio di Buoninsegna’ in Siena. The collection makes the Cassoli Museum the only museum in the Siena province entirely dedicated to nineteenth century Sienese painting. The section on drawing and sculpture is particularly interesting.
