LIBARNA
A ROMAN
CITY
libarna.al.it

The origin of the city of Libarna dates back to the route of the via Postumia that connected Genoa with Aquileia in 148 BC, although the start of a real urbanization process was established with the measures introduced in 89 BC. The "rediscovery" of the city took place during the opening of the Turin-Genoa “royal road” (1820-1825) and the construction of the Genoa-Novi-Turin (1850-1852) and Genoa-Milan (1912) railway lines. Only in 1924, with the imposition of archaeological restrictions, the destruction ceased and the consolidation and restoration interventions on the monuments started.


MUSEUM
OF SERRAVALLE
SCRIVIA
The Museum

The Serravalle Museum is a fascinating journey among the precious finds recovered in the city of Libarna: located on the ground floor of the municipal building, in via Berthoud 49, it collects a selection of ornamental pieces from buildings that initially belonged to a nineteenth-century private collection. It boasts fragments of capitals, frames, decorations, the epigraph of the scribe Caius Catius Martialis (II century AD), part of a marble slab with the relief heads of Pan and Gorgon.


ART GALLERY
OF THE CAPUCHIN
FRIARS
The Gallery

The Art Gallery of the Capuchin Friars enriches the small centre of Voltaggio with an outstanding collection of sacred art paintings that are kept in the church and in the Capuchin monastery of this small town. The museum boasts XV to XVIII century works from Ligurian, Piedmontese and Lombard authors such as Luca Cambiaso, Domenico Fiasella, Sinibaldo Scorza, Bernardo Strozzi, Agostino Bombelli and Paolo Pagani.
