Casa Bicocchi represents the bourgeois life of the XIX century of a wellbeing, religious and devoted family that, in addition to carrying out activities linked to the growing industrial productions, held an important role in public administration and managed land ownerships.
The house (“Casa”) gives the visitors an insight into the life of a bourgeois family in the 1800s. The original furniture and decorations have been cleverly reconstructed and inserted into the domestic setting of the museum. A part of the permanent exhibition on Warriors and Artisans, which is mainly on display in the Palazzo Ricci, is set up in the Casa Bicocchi, bringing visitors on a trip from the Paleolithics to the Renaissance.
The majestic furniture, the sophisticated decorations on the ceilings and the precious fabrics and French wallpapers give the house its atmosphere of luxury and wealth, which are very different from anything we’d find nowadays.
