Museum Venturino Venturi


A permanent collection of 93 works among drawings and sculptures donated by the artist himself

The Museum Venturino Venturi is located on the ground floor of the municipal building of Loro Ciuffenna at the behest of the artist himself, who was born here in 1918. Growing up between France and Luxembourg and living between different cultural capitals, Venturino chose to return to live in this small village on the slopes of Pratomagno in the 1980s, building his own house studio there, now home to the Documentary Archives, which preserves an extensive collection of works and documents.


The museum is the most important public collection of the artist's works and was inaugurated in 1993 by Venturino himself with the display of the 93 works he donated to the municipality of Loro Ciuffenna. Today, the exhibition is divided into 7 sections that trace the main themes of Venturino's artistic research: a multi-faceted artist with important relationships in the world of culture and who never wanted to identify himself with a single artistic current.

Particularly striking is the Portrait Gallery, where it is possible to admire portraits on stone of some of the most important figures in 20th century Italian culture, such as Ottone Rosai, Vasco Pratolini, Mario Luzi and Giovanni Michelucci. In the rooms of "The Origins of Venturino's Art" are some works dedicated to Pinocchio, to whom the artist was particularly attached. Worth knowing: Venturino Venturi is the author of the mosaics that decorate the Piazzetta dei Mosaici in Collodi Park.
