Dino Formaggio Contemporary Art Museum at Teolo
Dino Formaggio Contemporary Art Museum was established by Teolo municipality in October 1993. The museum holdings include paintings and sculpture collections dated from the end of the 19th century up to today. There are about 200 paintings and sculptures by famous 19th-century artists such as Medardo Rosso, Francesco Paolo Michetti, Angelo Dall’Oca Bianca, and Vincenzo Irolli, and 20th-century artists such as Aligi Sassu, Renato Birolli, Fiorenzo Tomea, Italo Valentini, Tono Zancanaro, Carmelo Cappello, and Tito Gasparini. The collections display also works by important foreign artists such as Vilim Sveçniak from Zagreb, Gugo Manizer from Moscow, Sylvain Nuccio and A. Bartolomeo Trombini from Nimes, and Julia Lòpez from Mexico. The museum was dedicated to Dino Formaggio who promoted the collection and enriched it with a personal donation to Teolo municipality. He was emeritus professor at the University of Milan and worked in Padua as aesthetics professor, faculty dean and pro-rector with general appreciation. The museum is housed in the ‘Palazzetto dei Vicari’ in Teolo, ideal starting point for visiting the Euganean Hills area. The Palazzetto dates to the end of the 16th century and was used as administrative and military centre by the Venice Serenissima Repubblica. It was refurbished and restored by the municipality of Teolo with the contribution of Ministero dei Beni Culturali e Ambientali (Ministry of National Heritage and Culture).
