Frugone Collections

Housed in the historic villa Grimaldi Fassio, which was completely redesigned by the architect Luigi Carlo Daneri in 1958-1960 for the residential needs of the Fassio family, then purchased by the City of Genoa in 1979, the museum preserves 284 works in a stunning natural setting, embellished with a splendid rose garden overlooking Nervi's evocative rocky coast.
