The Giorgio Kienerk Museum is housed in the 19th-century ex-courthouse in Fauglia, inside what were once the prison cells. It was founded to conserve and ensure public access to the collection of works made by the post-Macchiaioli painter Kienerk, which his daughter Vittoria donated to the local community.

The artist, born in Florence in 1869, spent a lot of time in Fauglia, where he owned a country house, the villa on via Poggio alla Farnia, and where he died in 1948.
