  • G.Gorni dispersed museum
    Museums

    The museum is located in the G. Pascoli former Elementary Schools of the Nuvolato hamlet, a building designed by the artist himself between 1929 and 1930, and inaugurated in 2005 to host its many works. The collection consists of 400 works including sculptures, engravings, drawings and paintings. The drawings are populated by cows and peasants, made of daily gestures, of small affections, shown with the strength and intensity of those who found the right key to reading. The sculptures, modeled with the clay from the rivers Po and Secchia, capture the strength of the earth making the poses full of vigor and passion. Gorni's works offer us a very special view of the twentieth-century peasantry.
