Apr - Jul, 2011 - Genoa, Villa Dufour opens up to the public
Villa Dufour was recently restored to its original splendour, preserving stuccos, granolithic floors, doors and windows, as well as the nineteenth-century furniture of the billiard-hall and the early-Renaissance furniture of the dining room by Zignago and Perasso where the table used to be finely laid with the sets currently on display at Palazzo Spinola.
The villa is now open to the public and offers an approximately sixty-minute tour guided by art history students who illustrate the history
of the Dufour family guiding the public through the accurately preserved and restored halls and
the beauties of the botanic garden. Further Information:
