The Fondazione Paolo e Carolina Zani per l’arte e la cultura offers a guided itinerary from the Casa Museo collection to its garden, located in the municipality of Cellatica  in the heart of Franciacorta countryside, towards the city of Brescia and the Iseo lake.

The Museum’s collection includes 1200 pieces, among which paintings, sculptures, works of applied art and furniture. Some of the most noteworthy items are by Canaletto, Tiepolo, Guardi, Longhi, Boucher, which are placed alongside choice pieces of baroque and rococo furniture, mainly French and Venetian, and extraordinary works of 17th and 18th century applied art. Absolute masterpieces are: the pair of 1789 Commodes by Giuseppe Maggiolini with inlays by Andrea Appiani, and the Octagonal Table in semiprecious stones produced between the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th century at the Galleria dei Lavori in Florence.

The garden was created as a natural fulfillment of the collection, a corner of the world through sculptures, fountains, architectural elements in a dialogue with nature.

Tours of the Casa Museo and its Garden, organized for small groups and always guided, are allowed by reservation on the Foundation site
