Museo d'Arte Orientale Edoardo Chiossone

Liguria has returned to the "orange zone" from February 14. 
Therefore, as part of the measures to combat the covid-19 outbreak, the Museums and places of culture remain closed, and the exhibitions in these places are suspended, until further notice.


Designed by architect Mario Labò, this museum preserves and exhibits the rich heritage of Japanese and Chinese art collected in Japan by Edoardo Chiossone between 1875 and 1898: paintings, prints, weapons and armour, bronzes, lacquerware, ceramics, porcelain, costumes, and textiles, with approximately 2000 pieces on permanent display.

Due to their delicacy and fragility, Ukiyo-e paintings and prints by famous artists, such as Harunobu, Utamaro, Hiroshige, and Hokusai, are displayed during temporary exhibitions.

For information on prices and schedules, please visit the organisation's website.
