Precious objects from the Museum’s backrooms are exhibited as evidence of artistic tastes and sensibilities in 18th and 19th century Parma.
These include a small but sophisticated collection of tableware typified by understated, elegant decorative motifs, which turn up frequently in the fine ceramic table sets that embellished aristocratic homes, plus a stylish set of silverware made by the Milanese silversmith Calderoni that once belonged to the family of the musician Nicolò Paganini. There are also objects from Damià Campeny’s spectacular Trionfo da Tavola (1803), in addition to portraits and large paintings from the Bourbon era displayed in the next room. Together, they spin a tale related to food and nutrition, which showcases spectacular table sets along with the court rituals and everyday moments of the aristocracy.
