Fondazione Palazzo Ducale Genova

“Welcome to the exhibition rooms of the Wolfsoniana; the works you shall see and learn about testify one of the most intense periods of change in our recent history. You shall exit the museum and the navigation of this site with questions and curiosities.
It is the goal of my collection: “to make people think”.
…but I’m not interested in what you think: I shall simply be happy to have stimulated the birth of an idea within you, of a souvenir, a dream”.  

Mitchell Wolfson Jr.

Wolfsoniana is the place where the selected objects of the Wolfson collection find their expositive place. The visitor who walks throuh furnitures, paintings and furnishings taht aere exposed, feels the taste of time and the importance of themes that Micky Wolfson wants to emphasize through his collection.

The arrangement of Wolfsoniana follows a chronological/thematical address. Beside the chronology of the cultural movements, of the artistic currents and stiles, they wanted to emphatize the thematics which characterize the collection:

  • evolution of decorative arts,
  • art of propaganda,
  • work
  • travel,
  • international exhibits and expositions.

At woflsoniana the visitor feels and tastes the spirit of the collection in his complexity and heterogeneity.
