Strada Nuova Museums, Palazzo Tursi

The UNESCO World Heritage Site Via Garibaldi – the baroque Strada Nuova dating back from the Italian Rinascimento – is the extraordinary setting of a unique itinerary connecting three important Genoese buildings: the Palazzo Rosso, the Palazzo Bianco and the Palazzo Doria Tursi.
The Palazzo Doria Tursi was built during the ‘Golden Century of Genoa’ (approx. between 1530 and 1630). It houses the boardrooms of the Mayor, as well as the enlargement of the Palazzo Bianco Gallery. Its monumental halls display famous items, such as the Guarneri del Gesù, the violin which belonged to Paganini, as well as a remarkable exhibition of decorative art pieces, and a collection of official coins, weights and measures from the old Republic of Genoa. A specially designed room of the Palazzo Tursi is dedicated to Niccolò Paganini (1782-1840). The famous violinist and composer from Genoa bequeathed his favourite instrument – the one he referred to as his “cannon violin” due to its full sound – to his hometown, where it was to be “preserved for eternity”; other memorabilia have also been added over time, thanks to the generosity of his heirs or by other means.
