Casa Museo di Ivan Bruschi information
The 13th-century Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo opposite the pieve was restored in the 1960s by Ivan Bruschi, a wealthy antiques dealer. Since his death, the Palazzo has opened its doors as a private house museum showcasing Bruschi's eclectic personal collection of furniture, art, coins, jewellery, costumes and ceramics dating from the prehistoric, Etruscan, Greek, Roman, medieval and Renaissance periods.
