The Landscape Museum in Verbania-Pallanza

It is housed in a mansion of the 17th-18th century, a few minutes walking from the lake-front of Pallanza, a sunny little town on the Gulf Borromeo. In the second half of the 19th century many Lombard landscape painters derived inspiration for their works from the landscape of Lake Maggiore. In the Museum are different sections: among the paintings there are frescoes of the 15th and 16th century and paintings from the 15th to the 20th century. Most of the works were painted by Lombard-Piedmontese painters from the second half of the 19th to the first half of the 20th century. There are sculptures executed by Paolo Troubetzkoy, Giulio Branca and Arturo Martini. In the archaeological section there are Gallic-Roman finds found in the necropolis situated at the mouth of Ossola Valley into Lake Maggiore (dating from the end of the 2nd century B.C. to the end of the 1st century A.D.).
