Museo nel mondo di Tonino Guerra

This museum presents works by Tonino Guerra, born in Santarcangelo (1920 – 2012), dearly loved in Romagna for his paintings and other works of art, and internationally famous for his poetry and screenplays. Guerra’s creative interests extended to many fields, and over his life he also expressed himself in the arts of ceramics, architectural design, fountains and installations, all of which display his extraordinary and infinite poetic energies. The museum is housed in the former Monte di Pietà, built in 1630 to accommodate a charitable institution that helped the poor by lending money at moderate interest against pawned objects. The institution closed in 1934.
