We visited at lunchtime in early June and, suspect, we were the only folks there. The permanent exhibition is quite splendid but the temporary is a lot more hit and miss – there was more quality ‘modern art’ in the permanent exhibition than the temporary...More

We wanted very much to see this collection but didn't want to drive from Parma. We learned from the tourist office there is a bus. It was very simple, just buy your ticket at the TEP office next to the station. Walk 1 block, get...More

It's located in a village 17km south of Parma & is worth a special detour even without visiting the Torrechiara castle. A beautiful villa standing in a big park. Inside there are temporary exhibitions, but for me the highlight was the permanent one displaying works...More

A great collection, in a very pleasant (if anachronistically English parkland) setting. The Durers are a rare treat especially, but interesting mix of Impressionist and 20th century Italian art too. Worth tying in with a trip to the local castle at Torrechiara on a cycle...More

A magnificent collection tucked away in the countryside outside Parma is not to be missed by art lovers. It can be easily linked to a visit to the stunning castle of Torrechiara in an excursion from Parma. The villa is set in beautiful formal English-style...More

The park is beatiful, the interior of the Foundation is well organized. However people at the reception and also those serving at the inside bar-restaurant seems to be there to serve for a sentence: it is very hard to succeed to obtain an information or...More

A fantastic location in the middle of the countryside, but excellent links to Parma (incl. the train station). English-style park and a first-class collection. Temporary exhibitions are planned each year. Masterpieces include Goya, Morandi, Cezanne, Canova, Titian, Durer, etc. Very good restaurant in the ex-stables....More
